Focus On: Creative Materials Marks 25 Years

In 1987, Silvio Morano founded Creative Materials to provide custom-formulated, high-performance materials for increasingly technical product requirements. OverCreative Materials the past 25 years, the company has helped its customers to launch new products, improve product performance and pursue new entrepreneurial endeavors. Each of its materials was developed in relation to a particular application need by an experienced team of application engineers and R&D specialists, guided by input from the end user.


Silvio Morano began his career at Amicon Corp., a pioneer in the polymer coatings industry, where he worked for more than 20 years. When he founded Creative Materials, he brought a wealth of technical expertise and business acumen, along with his drive for excellence and motivating spirit.

In 2004, Stuart Ganslaw joined the business as co-owner and vice president of Business Development. Ganslaw’s background includes more than 20 years in the specialty adhesive film and tape industry, previously as co-founder and owner of Coating Sciences Inc. and ultimately as president and general manager of Scapa North America.

The staff combines the talents of experienced chemical, mechanical, and plastics engineers who have an in-depth understanding of polymeric materials and the properties and chemistries that can be achieved by combining them.

Creative Materials has built a staff that includes a Technical Services department, an R&D team, and knowledgeable manufacturing and Customer Service personnel. The staff combines the talents of experienced chemical, mechanical, and plastics engineers who have an in-depth understanding of polymeric materials and the properties and chemistries that can be achieved by combining them.

In addition, the company is ISO 9001:2008 certified, with a strong orientation to excellence, quality assurance and customer satisfaction.


Creative Materials’ products tell the story of the technology demands in its industry, with increasing specialization of materials for niche markets and state-of-the-art products. Yet some of the company’s oldest products are still bestsellers and provide the foundation for many advanced formulations that have been customized and improved to meet market demands. 

Some newer products reflect applications in the growing printed electronics market, the need for high-performance products, and the demand for lower-cost products, such as electrically conductive fine-line inks and epoxy inks, opaque black dielectric ink, and black conductive carbon ink.
