Conductive Transparent Films (Indium Tin Oxide Replacement)

 

Customer Requirement: Tel Aviv University (TAU) developed a technology to produce transparent conductive coatings based on silver nanowires. TAU wanted technological and commercial assessment of technology and design of coating line.

 

Challenges:

  • Very basic prototypes

  • Reproducibility issues involve many steps

  • Find relative advantages of Indium Tin Oxide transparent conductive coating

 

Process:

  • Complete technological and commercial analysis of TAU’s technology

 

Solution: TecSolut successfully analyzed TAU’s conductive coatings

Natural Antibacterial Polymer for Hygiene Applications

 

Customer Requirement: A research group at an Israeli university developed a unique, natural starch-based polymer with antibacterial properties. They approached TecSolut to perform scale-up for manufacturing of this polymer.

 

Challenges:

  • Process developed at the university was not scalable

  • Process should be scalable and economic

  • Antibacterial properties of polymer must be retained

 

Process:

  • Different types of starches were evaluated.

 

Solution: TecSolut developed a multi-kilogram scale-up process and the university licensed the process to an industrial customer.
