While the Potential for Smart Polymers in Industry is virtually limitless, Bioastra has honed in on Four Key Verticals with the most potential to disrupt:
With its unique Polymer-Based Phase-Change Nanocomposites and Emulsions that can be directly coated on Plastic or Paper, the Bioastra team has developed a novel thermal buffering system for food and medical products. Other offerings in packaging include thermochromic labels, anti-ripening coatings and porous polymer-based insulation coatings.
SMART TEXTILES AND MEDICAL DEVICES:
Bioastra’s proprietary Solid-SolidThermoresponsive Polymers form the basis of both smart garments to cool the body in warm weather as well as for transdermal drug delivery. Our Smart Polymer solutions are also being tested for user-activated drug dispensing, physiologically-responsive biomaterials and active wound-healing patches.
ENERGY AND CLEANTECH:
Be it for Smart Coatings for Windows and Roofs, Responsive Filters to selectively flocculate certain solvents and chemicals or switchable polymers for enhanced oil recovery, our Smart Polymer Platform has developed a variety of innovative solutions for our clients in the energy and cleantech space.
ROBOTICS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY:
While still in the early R&D stage, the potential for smart polymer in IT whether for multiple phase-change memories, tactile tablets or artificial muscle actuators is immense.
