Tetramer Receives National Science Foundation Grant To Develop Optical Fiber Coatings

Tetramer has received NSF funding under a Phase II SBIR grant (IIP-1330948) to develop and commercialize high-temperature, highly processable optical fiber coatings. These polyimide coatings which will be sold under the name Tetrimide.  Tetramer anticipates that the polymers developed in this project will have performance characteristics not currently available in fiber coatings and will enable operation at temperatures above 300 °C.
Tetrimide coatings have potential to impact a wide variety of markets. Down-hole fiber sensors with Tetrimide will proved improved temperature monitoring ...

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 ...
