About Presidium (www.presidiumusa.com): Established in 2011, Presidium is a disruptive technology company creating new engineered materials at its research and development facilities in London, Ontario and Schenectady, New York. Presidium's first product line was released in late 2017. RevoTherm™ (short for revolutionary thermoset) is a new patented two-part (A+B) resin system with material properties capable of replacing fiberglass in many applications without the need for glass reinforcements. RevoTherm™ is mixed and pumped directly into part molds through commercially available meter mix systems. Final part production is made easy, cost competitive and environmentally friendly. In many cases a finished part is made in minutes rather than hours, saving time, material and cost for the part manufacturer and their customer. Presidium’s second product line was released earlier this year. Q4 is a new patented silicone-based engineered material with unique strength and impact properties that can be dialed-in to “protect” from and/or “absorb” multiple impacts. It can also be used in energy absorption and damping applications.
