Solvent-based exfoliation of nanomaterials provides simple, scalable, cost-effective routes for producing commercially useful quantities of a range of nanomaterials in the form of highly exfoliated solvent dispersions. The dispersions can in turn be used to deliver active nanomaterials into and onto many different commercial application targets. Polymer nanocomposites exhibiting enhanced mechanical, electrical and barrier properties have been a primary area of research and development at Xolve. The ability to cost-effectively exfoliate different types of nanomaterials and produce co-exfoliated mixtures containing more than one type of nanomaterial in an interactive system has opened up exciting new possibilities to optimize polymer nanocomposites for specific types of commercial applications. Using this approach, Xolve has produced new mixed nanomaterial polymer composites with unique performance properties compared to those based on a single type of nanomaterial.
