Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), a recognized worldwide leader in nanomaterials applications, announced a distribution agreement with Technology Marketing Inc. (TMI), a veteran Salt Lake City based distributor of composites and composite-related products for more than thirty years. TMI will be distributing ZPM's Epovex and Arovex products.

“We are ecstatic to be partnering with TMI, as our products will have excellent representation and distribution throughout the Western US and beyond.” says Lance Criscuolo, President of Zyvex Performance Materials. “With our products and TMI's distribution capabilities, we have great potential. TMI will be able to offer their customers the most advanced and highest performing carbon nanotube (CNT) resin systems and prepregs available today”.

“We are delighted to be offering ZPM's products.” comments Matt Herbert of TMI. “These new products are the future in the world of composites, and they allow us to enlarge our product offering with the most advanced materials available. This is the critical component needed for our customers to achieve breakthrough results that will allow them to make stronger, lighter, and stiffer products”.

Epovex is a new line of liquid epoxy resins from ZPM. Epovex resins are high performance, carbon nanotube strengthened epoxies ideal for numerous composites and adhesives applications. ZPM's patented and proven nanotube dispersion technology, gives Epovex superior structural performance. It also processes similarly to unfilled epoxy resins and can be cured with a wide range of curing agents. Epovex is available in both bisphenol-A and bisphenol-F types.

Epovex epoxy resins are recommended for use in composite manufacturing processes such as filament winding, pultrusion, and hand lay-up. Epovex epoxy resins can be used with most types of reinforcing fibers and fabrics such as carbon, glass, and aramid. It can also be used in adhesive and coatings applications with the proper choice of curing agent.

Arovex is a high performance prepreg using Epovex resin. The use of Epovex, optimized for use in a prepreg, offers dramatically superior mechanical properties over conventional prepregs without CNTs. Arovex is available in standard, intermediate, and high modulus carbon fibers, glass, and as a unidirectional, woven, or knitted material. Large custom material orders for Arovex are also available.

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Zyvex Performance Materials Inc. was spun out of Zyvex Corporation in April 2007. ZPM is focused on developing nanotechnology to improve the properties of composite materials. The company's patented technology allows composites to take advantage of the superior physical and chemical properties of carbon nanotubes by enabling the even dispersion of carbon nanotubes in composites mixtures. ZPM was the first company to provide carbon nanotube enhanced products to the marketplace.

Technology Marketing Inc (TMI) is a distribution, sales, marketing, and manufacturing company. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, TMI offers a wide range of high quality materials and accessories specifically tuned to the needs of composites manufacturers serving the aerospace, construction, automotive, marine, sporting goods and kindred industries where lightweight structures require high strength and stiffness. TMI's mission is to work with each client to furnish cost effective quality products and to earn each client's trust and loyalty for the long term.
