Florikan is proud to be part of a unique partnership with Space Plant Biology Team within NASA. They have chosen to use select portions of our innovative Nutricote® line of products to be the foundation for microgravity plant growth. This knowledge exchange has allowed us to begin to forge ahead into new and exciting areas of research and development.
As part of the NSPE New Product Award, Florikan received a grant from NASA’s SATOP (Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program), which assisted the development of Florikan's proprietary polymer coating process, Florikote.
