Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers
Posted on March 24, 2021 by USA College of Engineering
Professor Kuang-Ting Hsiao's research group has recently developed an innovative polymer matrix composite enriched with nanoparticles and reinforced with carbon fibers. This work was originally supported by NASA and later on by NSF, Alabama Department of Commerce, and industry. It is now further funded through NSF's Partnership for Innovation (PFI) program for exploring the commercialization feasibility with potential industrial partners in a broad range of industries including MHP Americas, Porsche Motorsports, UST Mamiya, Hexcel Corp., and Toray Composite Materials America. The composite is called ZT-CFRP and the information on ZT-CFRP can be found in several notable business magazines and company news: Composites Portal, Composite World, Composites Manufacturing, and MHP.
