CFRP ramps for rail trolley cars are 60% lighter and three times stronger than metal, promote employee and public safety when onloading and offloading and are ADA-compliant.
Funding will investigate how composite materials can best be used in final products, mitigation of their environmental impact and overall sustainability.
NAWA America’s immediate focus is to bring NAWAStitch to mass market, a thin film containing trillions of VACNT arranged perpendicular to the carbon fiber layers to reinforce the weakest part of a composite.
Composites often must meet a certain aesthetic in applications where the consumer is the end user. But fiber-reinforced materials are just as valuable in industrial applications where corrosion resistance, high strength and durability are the performance drivers.
