A selection of papers on our advanced materials research and developments in the coating industry.
Cirrus has created an advanced materials centre of excellence in New Zealand. Our team of PhD and graduate engineers create industry-leading surface coating designs.
Cirrus combines a dedicated laboratory, with characterisation and testing facilities available through the University of Auckland, to provide state of the art facilities. We extensively collaborate with Australasian Universities and Research Institutes to have access to the latest materials science and technology.
Cirrus has a 3-step engagement model. First, we prove we can make a difference on a client’s most challenging advanced materials design problems with a fixed-fee Proof of Concept study.
Early technology transfer is then enabled in the Product Development phase, where the client gains “experimental use” rights.
The final Commercial Use stage is where Cirrus technology is licenced for sale within a product.
What we do
Cirrus invests in talent, research & development and marketing to create assets such as patents, innovation and branding. We sell these as products in the form of applied IP, licences, formulations, and know-how to Fortune 500 clients who include our tech in their products.
Clients leverage our tech to improve the performance, cost and sustainability of their products, which are leading edge cars, planes, devices and industrial components.
