Check out Flexiramics, a flexible ceramic material!
a polyimide composite withstanding nearly 500°C
The problem with most polyimide composites containing ceramic fillers is that even though their thermal stability is improved, their flexibility is often left hindered. Well, that is not the case with this composite!
Flexiramics PI is perfectly flexible and not one bit brittle, combining the best from the ceramic and polyimide worlds.
The eureka crystal
Would you believe that a ceramic bends, folds and shapes anyway you want it? This is what we do. We create the materials that inspire new products and innovations. When designing new products, people are unconsciously biased by what a particular material can or cannot do and limit their options. We take a material and change the properties into what we need them to be. We challenge you to break the rules of design, and create products and solutions that never existed before.
Eurekite creates out-of-the-box functional materials to inspire the products of the future. Having a strong network including research and industry, Eurekite is developing combinations of materials and properties never seen before. We solve problems of the existing industrial products by changing the rules, as well as, by never taking any limitation for granted.
We are young scientists with a mission: the world needs to use the available materials, and change the properties to what is needed, instead of being limited to certain properties, or materials that are scarce, expensive, inefficient or even a threat to the environment or humanity.
Eurekite is a young, dynamic, scientific and creative company. It was founded by researchers of MESA + Institute for Nanotechnology in Enschede, The Netherlands.

Gerard is originally from Catalonia, Spain. He studied chemical engineering at the University of Barcelona. Moreover, he had several jobs in chemical labs and was an active board member in different associations. He moved to the Netherlands in 2011, to pursue a PhD in fabrication of nanomaterials at MESA + (University of Twente). During his PhD he invented the flexible ceramic material that resulted in the foundation of Eurekite.
Bahruz was born in Azerbaijan. He studied chemistry at Ganja State University. After graduation, he worked at Azerbaijan International Mining Company, where he became a senior process engineer. Later on, he moved to the Netherlands to pursue his education in a master’s program in chemical engineering at the University of Twente and gained further work experience at BASF, Germany. During his master’s program, he learnt about the flexible ceramic technology and co-founded Eurekite.
