ACRYLICS INNOVATION SECURES GOVERNMENT GRANT

ACRYLICS INNOVATION SECURES GOVERNMENT GRANT

NANO-ADDITIVE developer TenasiTech has secured $509,000 in funding to launch its acrylic glass product on the global market.

The Australian Government Accelerating Commercialisation grant will allow the company to execute its marketing strategy to international manufacturers.

TenasiTech's core product SOLID-TT is a material added to acrylic glass to make the surface more scratch-resistant and retain gloss.

TenasiTech CEO Richard Marshall says the technology has generated interest in a wide range of companies.

"We are thrilled by the support offered by this grant," Marshall says.

"Companies are showing strong interest in having more durable, glossy surfaces inside cars, around computer screens and in the many other uses for acrylic glass.

"This is something we offer in a simpler and cheaper way than the current coating techniques."

Marshall says the poor scratch resistance of acrylic glass is a key barrier to the more widespread replacement of traditional glass.

"We offer a solution which is safe, easy to incorporate and cheaper for manufacturers of acrylic sheets and injection moulded parts," he says.

"What's more, our solution allows more design options to our customers as the plastic can be shaped and bent unlike our competitors."
