Angstron Materials LLC has acquired a new 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility.
In addition to continuing its research and development efforts, Angstron will provide small to large batch processing and production capacity for its innovative nano-graphene platelets (NGPs).
Based in Dayton, OH the new facility will enhance Angstron’s ability to offer customers a total turnkey solution from application development and pilot quantities for test articles to scale-up for required production volumes. A cost effective, high quality alternative to nanotubes, Angstron says that NGPs are especially suited to aerospace, automotive, energy, marine, electronics, construction, medical and telecommunications applications.
“The new location gives Angstron the capability to produce tons of pristine NGP material annually,” said Dr. Bor Z. Jang, CEO of Angstron Materials, LLC. “One of the few companies able to manufacture these quantities, the larger facility will allow Angstron to more effectively meet customer requirements.”
Angstron’s engineered NPGs are available in several forms including raw materials and solutions, which according to Angstron can achieve a high loading and maintain uniform dispersion without degrading viscosity.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
Coriolis Composites has been selected by the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University (WSU), US, to provide a thermoplastics capable Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) system.
