NCC to offer materials testing services

Abstract:
The National Composite Center (NCC, Dayton, Ohio), a quick commercialization agent and manufacturing accelerator for advanced materials, has opened a materials testing laboratory equipped to meet mechanical, optical and thermal composite testing needs. The Center's test lab allows companies to conduct preliminary evaluation of new materials and designs before making a substantial investment in certified testing.

In addition, NCC's test lab is a component of the Center's expanding role in nanotechnology. Recent equipment expenditures include a portable ultrafine particle counter to monitor exposure during nanomaterial handling and processing, as well as the capability to measure the thickness of nanomembranes or "buckypaper."
