Why Smartfoam?

In applications where comfort, impact mitigation, vibration isolation, or sealing are important, Smartfoam provides engineers and designers with a material that can sense important application parameters without interfering with form, fit, or feel of the final product. Our mission at XOnano is to help designers build better products with a new class of advanced materials. We work closely with customers to develop custom electronics and algorithms for each application. We succeed when you succeed. We are committed to developing a solution that meets your specifications.
