About Us

Epic Advanced Materials exists to provide low cost and high quality Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) and other advanced nanomaterials to a variety of industry supply chains. Leveraging a high-impact IP portfolio of nanomaterial synthesis methods, Epic aims to increase nanomaterial availability and decrease the barrier to entry for commercial and academic research and development teams to implement nanomaterials into their product technologies. The Epic team knows that the next generation of advanced materials that will solve tomorrow’s engineering problems will be developed starting at the nanoscale.

Company History

Epic Advanced Materials was founded in 2018 in Los Angeles, CA and has since expanded its team to include a number of industry experts in the fields of nanotechnology, plasma synthesis, and boron nitride nanotubes. The technologies licensed by Epic were developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2015.
