Nanotechnology increases strength of SMC

Abstract:
Researchers at Michigan State University (MSU) in the USA have added a nanomaterial to sheet moulding compound (SMC) to make it stronger, tougher and electrically conductive.

Research shows that when about 3% of the material is added to a standard SMC formulation, the resulting composite material is 40% stronger, 20% stiffer, and has 80% higher impact strength.

The research was led by Professor Lawrence T. Drzal in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, director of MSU's Composite Materials and Structures Center (CMSC).
