PowerPolymer is a multi-scale, chemical-materials-structures platform that provides the world with structurally resilient, energy-resourced, and sustainable community solutions that minimize cost and vulnerability while maximizing quality of life and ensuring the future of our smart, built environment.


PowerPolymer's mission is to develop fundamental products and research in innovative, self-healing polymer / composite systems that produce a library of properties and capabilities on a community-resilience platform to address challenges in multi-hazards mitigation and structural & energy sustainability.
It was an honor to be a mentor for PowerPolymer during the Fall 2020 MassChallange. During the past few months, I have developed a deep appreciation for both Dr. Attard and his invention. The numerous benefits of PowerPolymer’s materials are incredible and applicable across a vast breadth of market applications. Even better, there are potential market applications that are not yet discovered. I am excited that I will be able to look back and brag, “I knew Dr. Attard and his company before they hit the big time!”

“To raise new questions, new possibilities; to regard old problems from a new angle… requires imagination, creativity, and ingenuity.  This marks real advance in science.”
- Dr. Thomas L. Attard, Founder & CEO of PowerPolymer 

About PowerPolymer

PowerPolymer harnesses the power of scientifically proven "chemical advantage" for builders, engineers, military personnel, original equipment manufacturers, federal agencies including the Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Highway Administration/Federal and State Department of Transportation, and more.

We link nano-scale technologies to a library of properties and  applications to combat complex multi-hazards on a community resilience platform.

Our patented nano-technology introduces tailored fracture toughness and damping properties scaled from a molecular level using our patented molecular re-generativity™ technology.  We have developed all-encompassing lightweight products that embody PowerPolymer's "Community Revitilization" foundation.

We are an innovative globalized community resilience company unlike any other.  We literally stop and catch .308 and .30-06 caliber bullets. We provide fire-resistant safe shelters for families during natural disasters, including EF-5 tornados. We extend the lives of aging bridges amidst earthquakes and slamming coastal hurricanes. We drastically reduce the frequency of concussion related contact sports injuries. We greatly enhance energy efficiency and wind-capture capability in lighter larger wind turbine blades. We provide damage-resistant car parts that save the lives of the occupants and cars.

PowerPolymer products are lightweight, affordable, extremely durable, energy efficient, and environmentally responsible.

How We Got Here

Our company concept was initially predicated on finding affordable solutions for residential construction in regions of high seismicity or devastating winds.  Of primary interest was the New Madrid Seismic Zone, a cluster of Midwestern states with dual threats of large seismic and tornadic activity.

However, the influx of mass shootings, terrorist attacks, and natural disasters created a heightened awareness for the need and challenge to inject unprecedented resistance through newfound fundamental damping.  This is the backbone of our "Protection for All" technology that saves lives.

Through extensive scientific research and testing, PowerPolymer developed a patented solution to protect against gunfire, automotive collisions, tornados, earthquakes, fires,
environmental and chemical hazards including pollutants and corrosion, and aging.  Our innovative, environmentally safe chemical compounds absorb shock and vibration and dissipate energy to minimize structural damage and loss of life!

With the versatility of our unique formula, our approach to community resilience came to represent an encapsulating solution, one that has been structurally tested and proven effective for multi-hazards environments in a tumultuous and changing climate and society!
