Demo Facility for Polymer Nanocomposites Lets Manufacturers Try Out Nanotechnology
The University of Dayton Research Institute has opened what researchers are calling the world's first manufacturing centre for product demonstration of nano-enhanced polymer composites.
Created in collaboration with the National Composite Center in Dayton, where it is located, the aptly named CMPND (Center for Multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites and Devices) will allow manufacturers to try out nanotechnology for use in their composite products, but without the major investment dollars and risk involved in purchasing new equipment and retooling their facilities.
