Material success

Abstract:
Back in October, Eureka exclusively revealed details of a new technology being developed by plastics giant DuPont. At the recent K2007 event, the biggest exhibition in the plastics calendar, the company revealed more details of the technology - including its name.

Metafuse is the coating technology that DuPont says will allow it to treat plastic components to make them compete directly with metal parts.

DuPont and three nanomaterials partners - Canadian-based sister companies Morph Technologies and Integran Technologies, and US-based PowerMetal Technologies - will develop and commercialise a nanocrystalline metal/polymer hybrid technology that will be used to manufacture lightweight components.

"We are turning traditional plastic/metal hybrid technology inside-out with an innovative metal-over-plastic technology that brings a step-change in performance," said Keith Smith, vice president and general manager of DuPont Engineering Polymers.
