OUR

STORY

GrainBound solves the critical problems that control material behaviors.

As a result, your materials become more predictable than ever before.

 

We partner with manufacturers of ceramics, metals, and composites to achieve targeted performance goals with applications spanning many industries worldwide.

 

With our services, your materials develop enhanced mechanical strength, dielectric breakdown strength, electrical impedance, among many other attributes, all to be realized in new and prolific discoveries. 

Most important to us is that we build long-lasting partnerships, ensuring that you always have certainty in your material and its applications.

The goal is to predict the unpredictable. Unlike any team in the world, we apply a knowledge of grain boundaries that delivers certainty about how materials actually perform.
