Academic and Industry Backed Expertise

There are many factors that can affect the selection of a material for your application, and we understand getting this right from prototype stage can have many benefits, including not having to re-design later in the product lifecycle.

We understand the balance between technical and commercial drivers and will collaborate with you to understand your needs. With academic and industry knowledge, backed by innovative materials databases, we look forward to discussing how we can support you. 

We of course treat every interaction with confidentiality. Lots of our work here is not shareable, however please see how we supported CERN to help solve their problem of radiation damage to light fittings in the LHC.
