NexTech Materials, Ltd. is pleased to announce the formal launch of its Nexceris brand of services. The new service organization will help clients overcome materials problems at all stages of product development and manufacturing.
By working with Nexceris, customers can draw on a team of world-class materials scientists, chemists, chemical and mechanical engineers who provide expert advice and decisive experimental evidence to solve difficult materials issues.
NexTech launched the new business unit to provide manufacturers and developers access to materials and process technologies it has developed in its pursuit of solid oxide fuel cell products. Far from being limited to the specialized needs of fuel cell applications, Nexceris offers materials and process development services that have already been applied to issues in automotive, chemical production, energy storage and sensor manufacturing sectors.
Nexceris is actively engaged in the development of unique corrosion protection coatings for steels, superalloys and brasses, as well as a line of catalyst products for VOC oxidation based on its established materials expertise. These technologies, originally developed for fuel cell applications, are expected to serve a wide range of markets.
Leveraging its state-of-the-art laboratories, Nexceris also offers a unique mix of physical, electrical, electrochemical and catalytic materials testing. These facilities allow Nexceris teams to design, produce, and test new materials solutions in rapid iteration, accelerating success for both the team and the client.
In 2008, Dr. Matthew Seabaugh, formerly Director of R&D for NexTech, assumed the directorship of the Commercial Services Division and has led its transition to Nexceris, shifting its focus from custom materials manufacturing for the solid oxide fuel cell application to providing services for broader markets. This shift in focus allows clients a range of options in accessing, co-developing, and licensing intellectual property with Nexceris. Remarking on the transition in market focus, Dr. Seabaugh said, "Over the past fifteen years, NexTech has developed a wealth of materials and process technology and a world-class facility to solve difficult materials problems. We're looking forward to the opportunity to share these innovations with our clients and to help them succeed."
Nexceris recently launched a new website (www.nexceris.com) that fully describes services being offered, and can also be found on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/nexceris), where its teams maintain a site showcasing new technology offerings and soliciting customer ideas, comments and feedback.
