10 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 01/01/16 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is that it offers the potential for a new process technology to produce silicon using a sustainable, natural resource as the starting material. Currently, all silicon used in solar cells and computer chips, and all silicon used in the manufacture o...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.8-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

The United States particularly through DOE and USDA has very strong and often integrated programs targeting the development of new energy sources (e.g. biofuels, wind energy, geothermal, etc) and improvements to sustainable energy sources especially solar power. Billions of dollars have been invested in diverse programs. In contrast, similar int...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop materials that function as semi-permanent mold release for the tooling industry. The coating systems proposed also offer icephobic, hydrophobic (non-stick), antibacterial and corrosion resistant properties. The tooling industry employs numerous combinations of materials and p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Agricultural products used as alternative energy sources can generate considerable waste. This waste will be enriched in plant extracted inorganics including high surface area silica. Mayaterials has already developed proprietary techniques to synthesize several useful chemicals (including several epoxy resins) from these wastes and proposes to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-169
Budget: 10/01/08 - 10/31/10

Mayaterials will team with the Drzal group at Michigan State University, the Laine group at University of Michigan and PPG Industries to develop transparent, fiber glass reinforced composites (FRCs) with mechanical properties superior to opaque FRCs. Mayaterials IP uses silsesquioxane nanobuilding blocks to develop and refine epoxy, hydrocarbon,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to convert renewable agricultural byproducts to solar grade silicon metal in an energy efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The hulls of rice and many other grain plants are rich in silica derived from the soil in which they are grown. This silica can...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-169
Budget: 11/20/06 - 10/31/08

Transparent armor face shields for soldiers are problematic because desirable mechanical properties must be coupled with good transparency and low areal densities. Despite excellent properties offered by polycar-bonates their properties have not kept up with advances in non-transparent armor. New materials are needed. Mayaterials believes that t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-111
Budget: 06/09/05 - 09/09/07

Phase I studies comparing octaminophenylsilsesquioxane (OAPS, cube)/epoxy coating systems to diaminodi-phenylmethane/diglycidylether of bisphenol A DDM/DGEBA coatings used traditionally as undercoats on aircraft frames and skins reveal that OAPS/epoxy systems offer: (1) improved thermal stability (40-60°C higher); (2) photolytic stability 2-3x D...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

Rice hull ash, which is being produced in large quantities, currently has limited commercial utility. Many nanocomposites are synthesized through very expensive routes. The project investigates the the low-cost production of nanocomposites derived from rice hull ash. These nanocomposites may be used in a wide variety of electronic, photonic and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-111
Budget: 05/23/03 - 02/23/04

Silanization is used commonly to form high quality interfaces between metals and coatings by treating surfaces with silanes RSiCl3 or RSi(OR)3 in a sol-gel like process. R can be many different functional groups ranging from glycidyl epoxy to aniline. These same silanes condense under sol-gel conditions to produce cubic silsesquioxanes [RSiO1.5]...
