Gainesville tech company experiencing fast growth

By Daniel Smithson, Gainesville Sun

“When using our product, you can polish a diamond like cutting through butter,” said Rajiv Singh, co-founder of Sinmat.

Tap on a diamond, if you just so happen to have the expensive, shiny jewel nearby.

It’s durable and known to be one of the hardest materials known to man.

There’s no way you’d be able to snap it in two, let alone scratch it.

But when exposed to a chemical product produced by Sinmat, a Gainesville company, diamonds aren’t so tough.

“When using our product, you can polish a diamond like cutting through butter,” said Rajiv Singh, co-founder of Sinmat.

Sinmat, located at 1912 NW 67th Place and co-founded in 2000 by Deepika and Rajiv Singh, produces and sells polishing slurries that contain a “unique mix of chemical and nanoparticles,” the couple said, and are used to soften and polish hard materials, such as silicon carbide, which is used to make electric and hybrid car batteries and sapphires used in phone screens and cameras.

The materials are used in the production of those products’ high-tech microprocessing chips, the couple said.

Smooth surfaces are needed on diamonds and other super-hard materials to eliminate defects that impede the performance of those devices, among others.

Deepika Singh, who was recently named one of nine Florida High Tech Corridor’s 2018 “Faces of Technology,” said the company sells to electric, solar power and LED light companies.
