The power of hidden patterns
The effects of patterned surfaces deep within materials ? specifically, at the interfaces between layers of crystalline materials ? could lead to new methods of controlling the properties of composites.
Drop-in magnesium substitution
New long fibre thermoplastic (LFT) materials which duplicate both the mechanical and electrical properties of magnesium in injection moulding or extrusion materials can lead to weight savings of up to 40% in composites.
Partners for 100% recycled carbon composites
Guangwei Group (China) and Adesso Advanced Materials (China) have signed a formal strategic partnership and at the same time launched the world?s first recyclable fishing rod made with Recycloset resin technology.
