DOE Award Grant to Develop Tampering Indicating Technology

Tetramer has been awarded a DOE Phase I Grant (DE-FG01-12ER90414) to develop nanocomposite coating technology for Global Safeguards.  There is a need within the Global Safeguards community for tamper-indicating coatings of varying complexity for use in the verification and authentication of nuclear security documents, materials, and equipment. Current commercial coatings for seals used in this type of application lack the sophistication necessary for quick, accurate, and reliable tamper detection. In addition to tampering, another vital attribute is to be able ...

Tetramer Awarded DOD Phase I Contract to Develop and Process Dielectric Films

Tetramer has been awarded a DOD Phase I SBIR Contract (N00014-12-M-0227) to develop and process dielectric films for application in large wound capacitors.  There is currently a great need for commercially available dielectric films which can outperform biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) at higher temperatures. While this need for such materials to improve the performance of high energy capacitors is well documented for pulse power applications such as the rail gun and reactive armor in military applications, civilian applications in electric ...

Tetramer Wins DOD Contract to Develop Advanced UV Curable Materials

Tetramer Technologies has been awarded a DOD Phase I Contract (N68335-12-C-0052) to develop advanced UV curable index matching materials.  In this Phase I SBIR program, Tetramer will develop new, commercially attractive, UV curable refractive index matching materials which have a significant shelf life in the uncured state. The value proposition to the customer working with fiber optic cabling will be increased reliability in refractive index matching adhesives(IMA) for fiber optic coupling and increased performance through a decreased attenuation at a ...

Tetramer Wins DOE Grant to Develop High Performance Water Vapor Membranes

Tetramer has been awarded a DOE Phase I Grant (DE-FG01-11ER90203) to develop high performance water vapor membranes to improve fuel cell balance of plant efficiency and lower costs.  As a technology that would dramatically reduce both US dependence on foreign oil and lower carbon dioxide emissions, stationary and transportation fuel cells are very attractive. Although the stationary fuel cell market is well establishes and prototype automotive and bus vehicles have successfully demonstrated practical road tested viability, the overall cost of ...

Tetramer Wins NSF Phase I SBIR to Develop a New Gas Separation Product

Tetramer has been awarded a Phase I NSF SBIR (0944518) to develop a new low-cost approach to energy-efficient enriched oxygen from air using unique high-permeability membranes.  This project is focused on commercializing a new gas separation product that will use ambient temperature air at low pressures to enrich its oxygen content from 20% to 30%. By using a new plastic that separates the components of air, this process will be 50% cheaper and more efficient than conventional cryogenic methods. The ...
