D-PYRE™ is a new environmentally friendly, non toxic, POSS based flame retardant developed specifically for plasticized PVC that Funzionano launched in the beginning of 2020.
The technology behind D-PYRE™ was developed over more than 15 years at SINTEF, the main Norwegian research institution.
Funzionano AS is developing hybrid nanoparticles or chemical «building blocks» which can be tailored to improve material properties like flame retardancy, hydrophobicity and gas barrier efficiency.
FunzioNano® is a generic technology platform developed through research at SINTEF over a period of 13 years (2002-2015), during which MNOK 80 was been spent on FunzioNano® product R&D.
Funzionano AS was founded in 2015 to commercialise the technology developed at SINTEF, and the company is now developing the production of functional nanotechnology-based hybrid polymers with proven, customised material-enhancing properties.
