LRM Industries has received a development contract purchase order from Hydrogenics to develop and prototype a hydrogen generation system component using reinforced themoplastics.
This program is expected to result in further commercial validation of LRM's proprietary TPF long fibre reinforced materials technology.
""We anticipate that Hydrogenics' generation system component will be the first of several plastic components or devices, which will benefit from conversion to TPF manufacturing,"" said Dr. John Verbicky, President of LRM.
The structural capabilities of TPF long-fibre-reinforced materials, which provide significant advantages in terms of (x, y and z axis) strength, may represent an attractive alternative for other components in Hydrogenics products.
Hydrogenics, which recently acquired Stuart Energy of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, is a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen energy generation and distribution equipment.
LRM Industries, LLC (LRM) was formed to commercialize ThermoPlastic Flowforming (TPF) technology through development, manufacturing and licensing. TPF is a process technology for the low pressure, fully automated moulding of long-fibre-reinforced thermoplastic (LFRT) large structural parts providing enhanced mechanical properties through the randomization and preservation of fibre length in moulded parts.
