PixClear® monodispersed, aggregate-free zirconia nanocrystals deliver revolutionary optical and mechanical properties:
Our proprietary PixClearProcess® enables Pixelligent to optimize and customize the surface chemistry of our Zirconia nanocrystals to allow seamless incorporation into existing solvents, monomers, and polymers, to create unparalleled optical properties.
For even higher refractive index applications, Pixelligent offers two types of titania nanocrystals for dispersion into solvents, monomers, and polymers:
Our proprietary PixClearProcess® enables Pixelligent to optimize and customize the surface chemistry of our Titania nanocrystals to allow seamless incorporation into existing solvents, monomers, and polymers, to create unparalleled optical properties.
Pixelligent’s breakthrough PixClearProcess® is based on its ability to synthesize metal oxide nanocrystals ranging in size from 5nm-20 nm and controlling the shape, size, and surface chemistry of these particles. Our award-winning material synthesis and manufacturing platform delivers the world’s leading monodispersed ZrO₂ and TiO₂ nanocrystal formulations and dispersions for next generation display applications.
Pixelligent has reinvented the way composite materials are made. By synthetically replicating a broad set of metal oxide materials found in nature, Pixelligent is creating Designer Compounds™ to deliver a never-before-seen combination of properties and performance. Pixelligent’s ability to control the surface of particles <20nm and bond a vast array of capping agents to this nanocrystal surface has essentially eliminated the trade-offs that have defined composites for the past 50+ years.
Pixelligent’s proprietary nanocrystals can easily be incorporated into the solvents, both polar and non-polar, and the polymers and monomers most commonly used in electronics manufacturing, including acrylics, silicones, siloxanes and epoxies. Depending on the application requirement, Pixelligent can achieve weight loadings of >80%, while delivering a solution-processable material with transparencies up to 95% and refractive indices in excess of 2.0. Our PixClear® products are critical for display applications that rely on ultra-high refractive index, near perfect transparency, low haze and robust mechanical properties.
Leveraging our proprietary and efficient PixClearProcess manufacturing platform and ISO certified quality management systems, Pixelligent has emerged as one the very few nanotech companies able to manufacture nanomaterials at commercial scale while maintaining world-class health & safety compliance. In 2017, Frost & Sullivan recognized our manufacturing process by naming Pixelligent the Manufacturer of the Year, the first time a nano-manufacturer received this award. Our scaled PixClearProcess utilizes a fraction of the footprint used by traditional chemical companies.
We have identified a total of 23 metal oxides where we can leverage our PixClearProcess® to develop new classes of Designer Composites™. The next PixClear® materials will deliver dramatically improved properties for lubricants, batteries/energy storage devices, semiconductors, 3D printing, and communication devices.
