Flexiphene provides the ultimate flexibility in your nano formulations. The colloidal nature of Flexiphene dispersions produced by the company improves the barrier, mechanical and conductive properties of the final products when compared to using surfactants or highly functionalized (damaged) nanoparticles. The company has large scale dispersion equipment and can provide emulsions from 50 mls to 50 gallons drums.

CTI Materials has an issued patent covering the technology and has adopted an aggressive strategy to protect the intellectual property of the technologies being developed.

This patent,”explains Mike Foley, founder “is critical for the direction taken by CTI Materials. CTI aims to position ourselves downstream in the value chain by creating ready-to-use materials and thru strategic alliances with industrial companies that want to apply this technology for integrating nanomaterials into their current or future product lines.” The company seeks to commercialize the technology by developing many nano enabled products and thru strategic licensing agreements.
