Ford Motor Company Accelerates Nanotechnology Work into Lightweight Metalsat Northwestern University

Abstract:
*The collaborative research activities between Ford and Northwestern University create another way for Ford to actively participate and assess the dynamically evolving field of nanotechnology, as well as other leading edge technologies.
* Ford is conducting this nanotechnology research jointly with Boeing, as part of an alliance with Northwestern University. This year marks the 11 th year that Ford and Boeing have worked together on technology development that has resulted in improved products for both companies.
* Long-term potential nanotechnology benefits to Ford include lightweight metals and plastics, nano-paints offering greater aesthetics, and enhanced coatings for improved performance and safety.
