MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT FOR
As a part of Tendaya’ s commitment to sustainability, we have extended our focus to include adhesives, polymers, specialty tapes and other components in the development of materials for use in electrically conductive leads for energy generation systems (e.g., busbar/tapes for solar panels) and energy storage systems.
With this endeavor, Tendaya is developing separator membranes, solid-state electrolytes, electrodes, and electric current collectors for use in high energy density and capacity batteries, fuel cells and capacitors.
ADHESIVE FORMULATION & TESTING
A large number of adhesive manufacturers have limited resources, and subsequently have difficulty offering products that are optimized for the applications they serve. Large manufacturers of adhesives typically sell products that have small sale volume through distributors and generally do not devote resources to optimize the formulas of these products.
Tendaya Technology Group will formulate and optimize the adhesive to the application for you. Tendaya will tailor the product to your specifications and evaluate its fitness for use in potentially lucrative adjacent markets. The work will be covered under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to protect your business interests.
We will test different adhesives formulations for you, analyze their performance in a given application, and generate a confidential report for you.
Our team has great expertise in the entire product development process: from ideas to product development, scaleup, manufacturing and commercialization. Our team will help you take your big ideas and bring them into the real world. At the end of your product development efforts our team will support you as you get your product ready for manufacturing. Finally, Tendaya Technology Group will get you closer to launching great products that work and delight your clients.
Our goal is to set you up for commercial success by providing innovative and differentiating products.
To get started, tell us a little bit about the project you are working on and how Tendaya can help. If needed an NDA can be signed prior to continuing the conversation with additional project details. From this point, a formal project proposal will be drafted.
Each year, suppliers develop new raw materials that require independent evaluation. Tendaya will provide accurate, unbiased material testing for application fitness.
Based on your needs, we will test your materials for targeted applications, and compare their performance to that of other products on the market
Tendaya specializes in various types of adhesives ( water-based, solvent-based, reactive, hotmelt, thermoset, and pressure sensitive), polymers, composites, and film products.
The raw materials evaluation includes products for use in energy storage systems as well.
RAW MATERIALS EVALUATION
The research services we offer include formulations using client-provided raw materials. The formulas are given back to the client to use in their scaleup of their finished goods and /or for marketing collaterals. The formulations we develop may be related to the current or new markets (to enable the client to enter new and lucrative adjacent markets).
Some of the materials we specialize in include innovative polymers, adhesives, and various composite products for use in diverse areas including nonwoven, construction, packaging, automotive, electronics assembly, and energy storage systems.
All the work we do for our clients is protected by non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Our work with a client may include a development of intellectual properties to afford the client greater competitiveness in the marketplace by offering innovative solutions.
The areas of interest listed is not exhaustive. It may expand in the future. Applications covered by Tendaya Technology Group include:
Energy storage systems such as batteries, fuel cells and capacitors components
Solar panels busbar energy collectors
