Tribotex is a technology company in our Spring 2017 cohort, we are very excited to have them in the program. They are a local company developing smart nanomaterials to prevent wear, reduce friction, and repair surface damage in machinery. Their technology has a wide range of uses and they have initially targeted industrial machines and internal combustion engines to commercialize the technology. The research is coming out of Washington State University and the founders have been awarded over $1M in SBIR Phase I/II (non-dilutive) funding from the National Science Foundation and other agencies to scale up the current dual-sided nanoparticle technology for applications in the broad industrial market.
Tribotex is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help create awareness and move into the first stages of production. Please visit their page to learn more about the technology and help spread the word either by pledging or just sharing the link with your friends.
