Auto makers find strength in nanoclay

Abstract:
A pair of automotive companies have begun to use a new injection molding compound that, according to the supplier, receives added resilience and strength from the inclusion of nano-scale particles of clay. The supplier, PolyOne Corp. in Avon Lake, Ohio, says that the two customers have asked that their identities remain confidential, although executives who market the material say they would like it to be otherwise.
