They allow customers to focus on research and product design without compromising quality and, in fact, often serve as a creative catalyst for innovative applications.

The result of environmentally sound processes that conserve energy and natural resources, these products include:

• Lightweight metal foams that reduce energy requirements while retaining the physical characteristics of the metal
• Bio-based and biodegradable polymers derived from renewable resources
• Ceramics that are non-toxic
• Composites that decompose naturally without leaving a trace
• “Green” graphene produced by a unique, chemical-free process
• Lead-free solder that can allow the joining of traditionally challenging materials, without flux
