TenasiTech is a materials company selling nanotechnology additives to make plastics perform at levels not thought possible. Our first product, SOLID-TT™, dramatically improves the scratch resistance of acrylic sheets and molded products (PMMA). Unlike competitors, we allow users to reshape the resulting acrylic. We are also developing Adaptive Polyol™ to improve thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), specifically toughness or operating temperature. In both cases the nano-additive is sold at industrially acceptable prices.

TenasiTech has operations in Boston, USA and Brisbane, Australia. The underlying patented technology was developed at the University of Queensland by Professor Darren Martin.
