The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has invested in a suite of new test equipment to further its composite research.
The $500 thousand boost will support USQ’s Centre for Future Materials (CRM) to deliver multi-million industry-led projects on composite railway transoms, next-generation pultrusion, and filament wound cryogenic tanks.
The grant secures equipment including TA Instruments HR-2 Discovery Hybrid Rheometer, Nicolet iS50 FTIR, and Netzsch DEA288 Ionic.
CFM operates a dedicated industry test service for over 1000 business clients across multiple sectors both nationally and internationally.
The popular testing, in compliance with national and international standards, ranges from materials characterisation, polymer analysis, mechanical testing and large scale structural testing.
