PARIS - Nanoledge, a Telesystem portfolio company, has sold its high-performance resin business to AXSON, a company specializing in high-performance polymer formulation. A startup focused on the high-performance epoxy market, Nanoledge improves composite material performance through its proprietary nanoblending technologies, which combine base resins with a variety of nanoparticles and selected chemical additives in order to target specific mechanical, electrical or thermal performance improvements while maintaining compatibility with manufacturing processes. The acquisition is expected to open up new markets for the technology.

AXSON was created in 2011 by bringing together BS Coatings, Revocoat and Axson Technologies.
