FLEXIRAMICS PI™ is a polyimide composite with enhanced thermal stability!
Polyimide is chosen for this composite as it is a high end polymer used across the electronics and transportation industries. However, Flexiramics® can be used to enhance various other polymers, potentially opening a world of other applications.
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.
Eurekite is a young, dynamic, scientific and creative company.
It was founded by researchers of MESA + Institute for Nanotechnology in Enschede, The Netherlands. Our mission is to enable new technologies by tackling challenges through the use of flexible ceramic nanofiber composites.
Our deep understanding of the processes involved in forming nanofibers allows for fine tuning and customization of the ceramic nano fiber composition.
We understand the relation between chemistry, available production technologies and product characteristics to enable scaling to industrial needs.
We have the in depth know-how in handling and post-processing of nanofibers necessary to develop functional composites with superior properties.
Usually composite films are formed by administering ceramic filling in the polymer. Instead we do it the otherway around - We use the polymer as a “filling” in our flexible ceramic, thus producing a composite that has perfectly unhindered flexibility.
