Hybrid Plastics gets $750,000 NIH grant

Oct. 28, 2003 – Hybrid Plastics Inc.  received a $750,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop nanocomposite-based dental materials.

The Phase II Small Business Innovation Award allows the company to develop a prototype adhesive and restorative system for bonding, shrinkage control and corrosion resistance. The materials will be based on Hybrid’s POSS Nanostructured building blocks.

Hybrid, based in Fountain Valley, Calif., but relocating to Hattiesburg, Miss., is working on the project with Ohio State University’s College of Dentistry and dental supply firm Pentron Corp. Hybrid and Pentron developed Nano-Bond, dental bonding agents commercially launched last year.
