Essemplex is a fully formable, thermoplastic shape memory polymer (SMP) resin. Like other thermoplastics, the polymer is easily processed into memory shapes using conventional methods. Once formed, the polymer exhibits shape memory properties. The fully processed SMP can be heated and reshaped repeatedly without loss of the memory shape or degradation of the material.
Our R&D Center focuses on technology development services for government and commercial product development organizations. With demonstrated expertise in multiple platforms, secure IP development, and in-house prototype capabilities, our team reduces the risk in launching new innovations into the marketplace.
We work to understand our customers’ needs and develop real-world solutions using an interdisciplinary team approach.
CRG has a proven ability to commercialize SBIR-funded technology platforms. Even though SBIR work accounts for less than 25% of our total research, it has lead to 100% of our commercialized platforms and spin-outs.
