Magnetorheological Materials (MR-X)

Delivering a controllable, precise and fast response, our smart Magnetorheological materials (MR-X) literally put you in touch with innovative technology, and will act as an enabler for automation, electrification and for user unique experience.

In today’s world, designers and developers need to create products that meet customers’ needs for exceptional performance, but that also support their efforts to be more sustainable.

Smart and controllable, MR-X increase in viscosity and stiffness when an external magnetic field is applied – returning to normal when it is removed.
When there is the need to absorb a linear motion, or to transfer torque in a rotating device, they provide instantaneous, controllable and precise response giving end users an enhanced experience across a vast range of applications including car shock absorbers, haptic devices for gaming, industrial automation and consumer electronics, joints and actuators for robotics, prosthetics, and more..

Durable, compact and lightweight, MR devices can help towards sustainability ambitions through lower energy consumption.

If you are looking for magnetically responsive and controllable materials let’s talk about your specific requirements, and we will tailor the behaviour of our innovative chemistries to match your needs.

Infineum specialty chemistries at the heart of cleaner mobility solutions – supporting you on your journey to a more sustainable future.
