"Quantum dots can be fragile and hard to functionalize
but the focus of our business has always been on stabilizing
them so they become more highly functional and easy
to use," said Clint Ballinger, CEO of Evident
Technologies. "Putting our proprietary quantum
dots into a range of common plastic materials accomplishes
this on a broad scale, bridges a critical gap in the
field, and can expand and accelerate the use of quantum
dots in creating new products."
EviComposites have wide applicability for applications
ranging from paints, inks, molded parts, films, fibers,
solar cells, optical standards or numerous other areas.
The EviComposite resins are available in Ultraviolet
(UV) curable clear resins, as well as Thermal and
UV Sol-gels. The EviComposite particles and powders
are available in polycarbonates, polystyrene, Polymethyl
Methacrylate (PMMA) and polyethylene. The EviComposites
are available in colors ranging from blue to into
reds, with a selected set of polymers in the near
"A critical problem with any emerging technology
is driving trial usage, which in turn drives application
development and market growth," said Sean Murdock,
Executive Director of the NanoBusiness Alliance. "To
the extent that EviComposites are able to retain the
nanoscale phenomena of quantum dots in a 'conventional'
material toolkit, it will accelerate the adoption
of the technology by reducing the learning curve and
transaction cost of trial usage."
EviComposites are available immediately, in quantities
from 1 gram to kilograms.
