The PixClearProcess® Nanotechnology Platform

1. Nanocrystal Synthesis

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.

2. Surface Treatment and Capping

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.

3. Dispersion and Application Engineering

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.

4. High-volume Manufacturing

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.
