Statement on Intellectual Properties from Inovia Materials

Inovia Materials LLC, established 2012 in Colorado, is the first and only company that develops ionic liquids as plastic flame retardants. Inovia Materials LLC has a subsidiary in China, Inovia Materials (Hangzhou)LLC.

Collectively, Inovia Materials has patents granted in Europe, America, Japan, and other countries and regions. Features of Inovia’s patents include using ionic liquid alone or in combination with various traditional flame retardants including aluminum diethyl-phosphinate.

Compared to other flame retardants on the market, ionic liquid flame retardants are new to the market. Patents filed before 2012 couldn’t cover ionic liquids as ionic liquid flame retardants were not known. Inovia Materials doesn’t have any intellectual property conflict with any organizations or individuals.

Inovia Materials has discussed our analysis of intellectual properties with major international flame-retardant development companies and plastic modification companies. They all understand and accept our standing.

Inovia Materials (Hangzhou) LLC has a manufacturing plant, an application development lab,  and a sales and technical support team. Inovia Materials is actively promoting ionic liquid flame retardants globally. Inovia Materials is willing to be held accountable if any discrepancies in intellectual properties arise.
