Based in Glenville, New York, Starfire Systems was founded in 1988 as a small company that provided advanced technologies in ceramics polymer chemistry. By 1991, the company had licensed a silicon carbide forming polymer from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute that would form the basis for its own silicon carbide polymer, dubbed Starfire SMP-10. As Starfire Systems grew, their product line diversified into a range of polymers, and the company became a leader in Polymer-to-Ceramic® technology. Starfire Systems contracted with Alliant Techsystems (ATK) for NASA in 2004, supplying the polymer material for NOAX™ (Non-Oxide Adhesive Experimental) that would fly on all subsequent space shuttle missions.
