TenasiTech, the clear choice for high performance composite polymers. TenasiTech will allow your polymer products to perform at levels you never thought possible. We have developed our patented, high functioning additives to deliver maximum consistency and performance. Importantly, our additive products are designed with the end-use in mind – we can disperse these performance materials into your host polymer without need for expensive equipment or process changes
Now Headquartered in Boston, USA, TenasiTech and its products come from the research of Professor Darren Martin at the University of Queensland. It is a Uniquest/Uniseed success story which has received multiple rounds of funding to get where it is now.
TenasiTech's first product release announcement from 12 July 2016.
TenasiTech is pleased to announce the launch of nylon additive, SOLID-TTTM, for greatly improved resistance to scratch and mar damage. Injection molders and sheet extruders seek more resilient surfaces to extend the life of their products, and maintain aesthetics for their customers. The solution to this problem has been painting or hard coating until now, but these require extra processing steps and thus increased cost of manufacture. CEO, Richard Marshall, said, "We offer a great option for scuff resistant plastics in markets where hard-coating is just too costly. The SOLID-TTTM additive for nylon is unique, and opportunities abound for many engineering thermoplastics."
SOLID-TTTM added at 1% has delivered excellent performance, such as:
Nylon 6: Pencil Hardness to H (up from HB without additive), and significant improvement to sandpaper wear tests.
Nylon 12: Pencil Hardness to HB (up from 3B without additive), 45% higher according to the Erichsen Scratch, dramatically improved appearance after friction/wiping tests, such as Crockmaster.
Nylon 6: 41% increase in strain at break, and toughness increase of 34%.
