FunzioNano - Multifunctional nanosized hybrid polymers that give your material a crucial lift

funzionano (ital) – They work!


The FunzioNano® technology has its basis in a cost effective synthesis of organic/inorganic nanostructured hybrid polymers.

The nanostructures can be given a variety of chemical surface functionalities which can give polymer matrix materials improved or entirely new properties.

FunzioNano® is a generic technology platform that has been developed at  SINTEF Materials and Chemistry.
