HyperDamping Inc.
Advanced Materials

HyperDamping Inc. is commercializing vibration, shock, and noise damping technology. Vibrations and shocks cause noise and damage to electronics, vehicles, aircraft, buildings, industrial equipment, and other everyday products. Existing solutions are limited in how much damping can be achieved due to weight load, available space, tolerance, and cost. HyperDamping’s unique material designs create effective and lightweight dampers from any elastic material and provide significant cost savings compared to current approaches.

EnergyEne Inc.
Advanced Materials

EnergyEne produces an alternative material for high-performance latex products in the medical and consumer healthcare industry. This natural rubber material, made from the guayule plant, is allergy-safe and has superior physical properties compared to synthetic rubber. In addition, a byproduct of this process is an energy-rich residual biomass that can be used in biofuel hydrocarbon production. The company has produced a radiation attenuation medical glove and is developing prototypes for lineman’s gloves, surgeon’s gloves, condoms, and exam gloves.

21MedTech (fka 3dBioResins, LLC)
Advanced Materials

21MedTech provides highly advanced resins for drug delivery, 3D manufacturing, and medical devices. While the use of 3D printing has shown explosive growth in industries ranging from automotive to personal care industries, the deployment of true 3D fabrication methods in the biomedical implant space has lagged due to a lack of medically acceptable resorbable resins. Polypropylene fumarate (PPF) is a resorbable polymer that can be printed using photocrosslinking 3D printing and has broad biomedical applications.
