Investment Summary

Ionix Advanced Technologies is a Leeds University Spin-out that has developed extreme temperature piezo technology for use in the protection of high value industrial assets.

The market for piezo technologies –harnessing certain material’s capacity to transform pressure into power or, alternatively, power into pressure – is already widespread and growing. The piezoelectric market is well established but applications are limited by the properties of the materials currently in use.

In addition to being one of the very few high activity piezo technologies capable of operating above 250°C,  Ionix’s devices are simpler, lower cost and are easier to install than the limited alternatives already in use (largely dominated by manual inspection devices).
