Who are we
Fulcrum SP Materials is a nanotechnology company commercializing the use of nanoparticles in components and products made from composite materials. Fulcrum’s patented technology, which includes its proprietary SP1/protein, utilizes genetically engineered proteins to create self-assembly nanostructures with Carbon NanoTubes (CNTs) bound to structural fabrics such as carbon fiber, aramid and glass fiber composites.
Fulcrum is the only company in the world that binds nano-particles to composites using a protein, and our SP1/CNT technology improves the performance properties of components and products made from composite materials – creating stronger and lighter parts, all at an affordable price for its customers.
