Because it matters
Zeroignition Canada Inc. is in the business of creating and licensing proprietary non-toxic chemical solutions and process applications which deliver unparalleled fire protection and thermal resistance to industrial and consumer end products.
ZI Solution and ZI Technologies represent a truly revolutionary and innovative approach to fire protection. The non-toxic, environmentally friendly attributes of ZI Solution, coupled with the cost effectiveness of ZI Technology put them in a class of their own from all other fire-retardant chemicals and technologies.
Zeroignition Technology Inc., the R&D subsidiary of Zeroignition Canada Inc., is seeking to recruit 3 research scientists to build on our multi-disciplinary team, based at our R&D Centre in Coquitlam, B.C., as we continue to invest in developing the applications of Zeroignition Solution, our innovative fire-retardant, to a very broad range of organic, inorganic and composite materials.
The key objectives of the R&D group are:
- To develop a deep understanding of the chemical and physical properties of Zeroignition Solution as delivered to customers, and as applied to target substrates.
- To develop strategies for chemical and/or physical integration of Zeroignition Solution with both natural and polymer/plastic substrates
- To develop new end-use product and process integration technologies taking advantage of Zeroignition Solution’s high performance and excellent environmental credentials
- To continue to build and optimise our market-ready suite of technologies for licensing to existing industrial products manufacturing businesses.
This work could include, for example: core chemistry and physics research into the fire-retardant mechanisms of our formulation; development of the formulation for different substrates; integration with polymers, coatings and plastics; improved application methods for cellulose and other natural materials; embedded application processes and technologies for industrial production.
