Next Generation Low Cost Light Weight Composite Technology
Structural Composites, Inc, Florida, United States
SBIR Technology for Advanced Combatant Craft opens doors for low cost high performance composites for lightweight transportation. Low cost high rate preforms are combined with a new co-cure coating and resin technology resulting in structures lighter than sandwich construction. This closes the price/performance gap hindering deployment in this market.
Primary Application Area: Automotive & Transportation
Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Our advances in low cost lightweight structures use some of the least expensive materials available for composites. We have been able to use these materials in innovative ways to produce lightweight high performance parts that bridge the price and performance gap needed to penetrate the transportation market.
