American Chemistry Society presents Jeff DiMaio, CEO 

Fiber Lasers to Low-fat Chocolate: A business built on applied chemistry

Wedensday, November 11, 2020

In the early 2000's. Tetramer Technoligies found itself in a position with no customers, no market, and no sources of outside investment. Relying on the team’s technical competencies in chemistry and materials science, the main product, PFCB optical polymer, was transformed into a functionalized block copolymer to serve as a proton exchange membrane for the General Motors fuel cell car program.  The decision to pivot into a new application space was Tetramer’s first, but not it's last.  In this presentation Jeff will review models Tetramer Technologies has developed to solve a wide range of materials challenges across a variety of applications for industrial and defense customers across all stages of innovation, from concept to manufacturing.

This will be a in-person event with a ZOOM simulcast at the Runway Cafe in Greenville, SC.                                                            Attendance will be limited for the in-person meeting in keeping with the most current standards in place for the pandemic.
