Carbon fiber nanotubes, once the province of the lab bench, is moving into the composites production environment, providing additional strength and electrical conductivity properties in high-performance applications.
A $3 million Ohio Third Frontier award to the University of Dayton Research Institute will fund the scale-up and production of a new carbon nanomaterial that will allow composites to “multitask.”
