  • Reactive Surfaces
    (512) 472-8282

    Reactive Surfaces adds functionality to paints and coatings, “bringing them to life.”

    Initially, our bioengineered additives were designed for decontamination and remediation of chemical and biological threat agents. Today, RSL is developing enzyme- and peptide-based additives for self-cleaning surfaces, biocidal surfaces, mold-inhibiting surfaces, deodorizing surfaces, textiles with reactive coatings, self-healing coatings and catalytic column coatings for liquid and gaseous waste-stream decontamination.

  • Chromis Technologies
    (732) 764-0900

    We’ve invented cutting-edge cyclic fluoromonomer synthesis, polymerization, and post-polymerization processing methods, disrupting the status quo in the field of amorphous fluoropolymers. Our proprietary methods allow us to do such things as:

    vary the types and proportions of comonomers in our formulations
    customize functional groups
    control molecular weight and polydispersity
    increase or decrease material viscosity and solubility
    vary temperature performance
    At the same time, we’ve eliminated the need for fluorosurfactants such as PFOA/PFOS/GenX.

    We work with clients to combine our deep knowledge of specialized fluorochemistry techniques with your insights about the requirements that would make your application work better. This gives us a pretty good idea of whether a new material is both technically feasible to synthesize and practical to use commercially. This “rational design” approach to collaborative innovation delivers the best solution to you without compromise.

    We’re using this approach to deliver solutions for a cleaner environment, to transmit data at the speed of light, and to enable new technologies and products across industries.

  • Mississippi Polymer Institute
    (601) 266-4607

    MPI is a non-profit industrial outreach arm that serves to foster business growth. It was born out of the School of Polymers & High Performance Materials and is sponsored by The University of Southern Mississippi.

    MPI strives to put the customer first and provide an environment that provides assistance to the entire advanced-material ecosystem. This starts at student outreach activities to increase interest and participation, then more advanced contributions to support product conceptualization-to-commercialization to grow businesses. At later stages this involves troubleshooting manufacturing issues and providing workforce training that enables companies to achieve new sustainable goals.

    MPI's capabilities include but are not limited to several aspects of material science: polymer synthesis, composite manufacturing, testing, compounding, extruding, molding, design, CAD modeling, 3D printing, workforce training, and educational outreach.

    In addition to serving industry with dedicated staff, laboratories, and equipment, MPI leverages resources with the School of Polymers and High-Performance Materials when highly specialized knowledge or equipment benefits customers.

  • Gould-Piland Research Group

    (601) 266-6339

    Our laboratory investigates the biomechanics of blunt impact events that have the potential to cause brain injury. Our goal is to understand how the nature of the impact event, the biomechanical and physiological state of the human, as well as energy mitigating technologies combine to influence the response of the head to blunt impacts. Through these efforts we help military, sport, and corporate entities develop standards, best practices and technologies that are well suited to reduce the risk for brain injury in humans.
