Ilika accelerates the development of new materials for energy and electronics applications through the use of its patented, high throughput techniques. Ilika’s technology enables functional materials to be made, characterised and tested up to 100 times faster than traditional techniques. Ilika has commercial partnerships with international blue-chip companies. Ilika’s high throughput technology creates large, robust datasets that can be used to fully define the performance of families of materials. This enhances the value of intellectual property and allows product performance to be fully optimised. The techniques can be used to support product improvement as well as radical new product development. Companies choose to work with Ilika in order to extend the capabilities of their in-house R&D teams. This saves materials development costs, reduces time to market and captures market share, thereby increasing return on R&D investment. Partnering with Ilika also reduces both business and technical risk, maximising the likelihood of successful project outcomes.
