Triad Growth Partners (TGP) has announced that their proposal submitted by subsidiary AxNano for developing a novel production method for robust, high-volume, cost-effective carbon nano-fibers (CNF) in support of next-generation materials for structural composite space applications has been awarded by NASA.
Charles Gause, President of TGP says he is optimistic for many reasons: “As carbon fiber composites technology has improved, it has been envisioned that composites may be able to take the place of metal and hybrid alloys that have long been used in space applications. This is particularly true in carbon fiber composites for launch vehicles where a low-weight replacement must also be non-reactive, dimensionally stable and have the ability to withstand freeze/thaw cycles of re-fueling.”
Specific markets where the technology presents the best opportunity are the aerospace and transportation industries – which represent multi-billion dollar markets. TGP has assembled a world-class team including recognized leaders in composite design, modeling, polymer chemistry and advanced CNF manufacturing.
Gause added: “The advancements made in this program will meet current and future composite application needs for the spacecraft, aircraft, passenger and commercial vehicle market segments. We expect the results of this program to lower cost and reduce the weight of composites.”
