Located on Canada’s West Coast, XlynX Materials (pronounced “Ex-Links”) is a specialty chemicals company developing novel crosslinking diazirine-based molecules and carbon nanomaterials to address composite materials challenges and enable bold new applications

XlynX is developing a suite of diazirine-based chemicals for covalently crosslinking low-surface-energy, hard-to-bond polymers. These new molecules address tough adhesion and fabric strengthening challenges as well as impart new functionality to polymer surfaces and textiles.

XlynX is also the first company to make graphane available on a commercial basis. XlynX has refined its process for manufacturing highly hydrogenated graphite (graphane) and is now commercializing the material for research and development purposes.
