Unsaturated polyester (UP)  resin  is a low cost thermoset with excellent processing ability and  mechanical properties  that finds applications in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) materials. It also crosslinks readily in the presence of a catalyst such ketone peroxide, forming an even stronger and stiffer resin. Unfortunately, this also leads to lower  fracture toughness . Several methods to enhance the toughness of the cross-linked resin have been proposed; one such method involved blending with nano-fillers m

Composed of highly aligned short carbon fiber with a thermoplastic matrix, this material is said to enable maximum weight savings, extended electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) range and reduced manufacturing costs (learn more about the material,  The goal is to develop physics-based simulations tools for modeling different processes in the manufacturing process, then incorporating these models into software suited for part design and manufacturing using TuFF. The meeting, held on Oct. 13, 2022, hosted nearly 200 virtual and more than 50 in-person attendees f

The method is reported in  Carbon  and involves making briquettes—dense packages of carbon nanotube powders. Nanocomposites made with briquettes perform equally well as those made from the more expensive masterbatches, which are also polymer-specific—that is, less versatile. We believe the use of dense briquettes of carbon nanotubes can significantly facilitate the development of the  car

This latest technology is said to resolve two longstanding challenges for self-healing materials, and can significantly extend the lifespan of structural components such as wind turbine blades and aircraft wings. “Researchers have developed a variety of self-healing materials, but previous strategies for self-healing composites have faced two practical challenges,” according to Jason Patrick, corresponding author of the research paper and an assistant professor of civil For instance, some require heating in an
