SUMTEQ GmbH is a technology start-up founded in 2014. Core business is the development, industrialization and marketing of SUMFOAM, an innovative polymer nanofoam. SUMFOAM is the first foamed polymer material with a homogeneous nanostructure that can be economically produced in a scalable an industrial process. Compared to conventional foams, the pores are 1000 times smaller than the structure of polystyrene. SUMFOAM combines unique material properties such as a highly efficient insulation property and high capillarity, which enables the use of SUMFOAM in an variety of technical applications (high-performance insulation, absorption, aggregate for coatings, ect.).
