Our Chemistry

Tygrus is a technology company that develops, manufacturers, and licenses its patented specialty, inorganic chemistries in multiple vertical markets. Our chemistries offer unique, high-value characteristics. They can be as effective or more effective than existing chemistries, while reducing toxicity to humans and our planet. For example one of our patented formulations, Tydracide™ has demonstrated:

  • Excellent antimicrobial properties including >5Log (>99.999%) kill on the COVID-19 virus in 1 minute (tests conducted at a CDC-authorized BioSafety Level 3 Lab)
  • Non-toxic in acute toxicity studies (EPA “Six-Pack”)
  • Low aquatic environmental toxicity (EPA Methods 2000.1 and 2020.1)
  • Low corrosivity (classified as non-corrosive for 316L stainless steel samples and is ranked “Excellent” in accordance with the Corrosion Resistance tables)

Our chemistries are protected by several USPTO granted patents with more than 75 patents in prosecution in the United States and major international markets.



Tygrus’ Agriculture subsidiary, Aqueus, provides chemistry to help improve the cation exchange capacity and solubilize nutrients trapped in the soil, increasing the availability of nutrients to plants.


Tygrus’ Industrial subsidiary will be focused on multiple applications within the industrial sector, such as pH adjustment and disinfection.


Our products are in development and currently being tested for efficacy in various medical applications.


Tygrus’ Battery subsidiary, Tydrolyte,  provides a potential drop-in replacement for sulfuric acid in lead acid batteries, which is less reactive and corrosive.

Health & Beauty

Our ingredients can replace the toxic preservatives in water-based personal care products.
