R&D Projects

Funzionano has several patents for different POSS technologies within hydrophobicity of materials, flame retardancy and gas barriers. We cooperate with different partners to take these technologies to the market. If there is a specific technology that you are looking for, we would be happy to discuss the potential for a future cooperation within R&D and commercialization.

Funzionano has a well-equipped and advanced laboratory as well as a highly skilled staff within chemistry and can help with developing ideas and products within our expertise.

Focus areas

Flame Retardancy
Our primary focus area is flame retardancy for a broad range of application including plastics and timber. Our Polyhedral Oligomeric SilSesquioxane (POSS) based technology has been tested and proven to have highly effective flame-retardant properties when added to commodity products, such as plastics.

Our secondary focus area is hydrophobicity. When adding FunzioNano® to a variety of materials, our nanostructures have shown an outstanding ability to increase the hydrophobicity in the products to which it is added/applied.

Gas Barrier
Our third focus area is adding gas barrier functionality to products. By adding FunzioNano® to emulsions and compounds we can improve the gas barrier properties in products. Our products effectively improve the gas barrier of PET bottles, while keeping the additive layer sufficiently thin to be washed off, maintaining recyclability.

A lot of interesting projects coming up, especially within making more environmentally friendly solutions for flame retardants in plastic.
