Electronic Polymers, Incorporated


Electronic Polymers, Incorporated is a Commercialization Stage Company developing and manufacturing Polymer Diodes. Our experienced management team has built a $100M technology business in less than three years, has ten issued patents and 44 additional applications, and is currently raising capital to fund growth in Sales and Manufacturing.


Unlike current technology, Electronic Polymers Polymer Diodes do not produce harmonics at GHz frequencies, thereby allowing low capacitance and smooth reception across the entire high frequency bandwidth. The result is higher network capacity and data transfer rates.
