Microscopically Reinforced Polymers Without Fibers or Fillers

This micro-reinforcement technology enables new applications where existing thermoplastics, elastomers, thermosets, and reinforcing technologies have not had sufficient toughness or fracture strength, particularly at elevated temperatures. The new reinforcement technology does not compromise the base polymer’s inherent characteristics such as heat and chemical resistance. The technology can be used for elastomers as well as for polymers (both thermosetting and thermoplastic types). The resulting composite is available in sheet precursor form, which can then be converted into different molded shapes. The technology provides reinforcement on a micro scale, leading to much more uniform reinforcement without the disadvantages associated with conventional methods.
