FORMAX UK Ltd., a global manufacturer of carbon fiber and speciality reinforcements headquartered in Leicester, U.K., has entered into a knowledge transfer program with the  Polymer Composites Group. The Group operates within the Materials, Mechanics and Structures Research Division of Nottingham University and focuses on the processing and performance of thermoset and thermoplastic matrices.

The collaboration between FORMAX and the Nottingham University Polymer Composites Group, announced Jan. 28 this year, was facilitated through the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) scheme, a U.K.-wide initiative that is intended to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills. The two-year project aims to develop a comprehensive material characterization capability and advanced simulation methodology for composites. The program reportedly will have a strong automotive focus.

“We are always searching for new innovations. To be working alongside such a prestigious and experienced team of researchers is fantastic. Over the coming year, we intend to invest time and resource into our product development and R&D functions to ensure we deliver the next generation of reinforcements to our customers,” comments Oliver Wessely, FORMAX's managing director.
