Airable Research Lab has several market-ready technologies available for licensing. We are also interested in partnering with organizations to customize and commercialize any of these products. For additional information on any technology, click on the image or contact us.
After prolonged exposure to the weather, concrete surfaces become damaged and discolored. Airable has developed a soy-based concrete sealant that acts as a water repellent when applied to porous surfaces. In lab testing, Airable’s sealant demonstrated improved water repellency over similar commercially available products.
Soy Ionic Liquid
Airable has developed a soy-based ionic liquid for extracting critical materials, such as rare earth elements. Many commercially available ionic liquids contain hazardous and toxic inorganic anions and have poor biodegradability. Airable’s soy-based formulation maintains good performance while addressing environmental concerns.
Soy-Based Structural Adhesive
Airable Research Lab has developed a BPA-free structural adhesive with high bio-based content, addressing the market demand for adhesives from sustainable sources. Researchers have demonstrated proof-of-principle with this two-part epoxy acrylate, and the first round of testing shows promising results.
Acrylated Epoxidized Soy Methyl Ester
Airable Research Lab has synthesized a renewable, soy-based acrylate monomer that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products.
Airable Research Lab has developed a urethane-modified soy-based fatty acid ester that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products. SAXETHANE has potential applications as an additive for stoving and air-drying enamels, thixotropic modifiers for solvent-based paints, friction reducers, and plasticizers.
Airable Research Lab partnered with METSS Corporation to prove that vodka, the purest of spirits, can be produced using soybeans or soybean meal. The result is an exceptionally smooth vodka for a market that seeks innovation. In blind testing, every taster picked soybean-based vodka over three high-end domestic brands. The artisanal engineered mash bills can be the base of other alcoholic beverages as well, including beer and gluten-free malted spirits.
Airable Research Lab has developed a multifunctional soy-based fatty acid ester that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products. SAXE-ONE has potential applications as a paint stripper or lubricant, as well as other industrial applications that entail extreme exposure conditions (temperature, pH, microbes, and corrosive environments). The product can also be used as a starting material for making acrylate monomers, friction reducers, plasticizers, and linear alpha olefins.
Surfactants are essential to enhanced oil recovery (EOR), but most of these agents are toxic and expensive. Soy-based surfactants, the result of a research collaboration, provide the...
Soybean Dermal Antioxidant Cream
This soybean-oil-based antioxidant dermal care cream is enriched with Vitamin E, green tea extract, goji berry extract, and natural preservatives. The ingredients promote skin rejuvenation and refined skin tone while helping to correct blemished pigmentation. The soy-based product provides a good shelf life without compromising anti-microbial/fungal properties.
