Innovative Chemical and Material Technologies

TensTech Inc. is a research company that focuses on developing new and innovative chemical and material based technologies. Our vision is to carry out focused research/development projects based on clearly identified internal product goals, in support of grant based projects, in support of the commercialization of university developed technologies and in joint research/development efforts with small to medium sized chemical companies. We work in the expectation that our efforts will have a significant impact on targeted applications and chemical markets.

Current Research and Development Programs

Current Technologies Under Development/Commercialization:

  • An advance fabric for use in the manufacture parachute deployment sleeves.

  • Advanced lubricants that will provide significant enhancements in process efficiencies and wear reduction in a range of industrial and consumer applications.

  • Polymers for hair conditioning that will revolutionize the way in which hair is cleaned and managed, along with providing enhanced scalp health.

  • New forms of cellulose, isolated from a low value agricultural bi-product, that have unique properties and are finding use in applications ranging from paper to enhanced plastic materials to high strength, low weight thermoset composites.

Current Technologies in Early Stage Research:

  • A new class of cost effective, high strength, inherently flame-retardant fabrics for military, industrial and consumer applications.

  • A new class of low cost, ion-exchange fabrics that are being developed to provide a cost-effective method for addressing the international drinking water issue. 

  • New approaches to the durable modification of fiber forming polymer surfaces

These products have been developed utilizing funding from a range of sources including the USDA, the US Army and internal development support.
