We have created a family of multi-functional lightweight designable polymers using versatile bond-molecule structures to provide a wide-range of properties and capabilities:

  • Strength Sustainability and Resilience
  • Fracture Toughness in Hurricane-Vulnerable Coastal Bridges
  • Blast Resistance
  • Vibration Control & Damping for Seismic Bridge Protection
  • Thermal Insulation and Energy Efficiency; Energy Harvesting
  • Automobile Crashworthiness
  • Tornado and Debris-Impact Resistance in Residential and Commercial Structures
  • Moisture Resistance against Flooding
  • Ballistic Impact Protection
  • Bio-medical Safety

There is no other company with this unique & versatile surface modification

Research icon PowerPolymer

Our testing and funding with government agencies has established nearly two decades of credibility, leading to immediate market application of the following products:

  • Poly-Defender: Military Vests and Sacks with Ballistic Resistant Slips
  • Poly-Storm: Storm Shelter Systems
  • Poly-Girder: PowerPolymer IDA application to retrofitted or strengthened girder-to-cap connection details in extreme seismic or hurricane environments
  • PolyC-Tank: PowerPolymer’s mitigation design of high-penetrable pressurized chemical tankers

The diversity of our applications is a statement in our ability integrate community resilience and sustainability into our city infrastructures.
