Although we have seen "morphing" structural materials before, they typically incorporate solenoids, pumps or motors that add weight and complexity. Now, however, scientists have developed a carbon fiber composite that shifts shape with a simple shot of electricity.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Carbon Fiber
We've recently heard about a number of experimental antibacterial food-wrap films, that could replace conventional polyethylene. The latter does have some desirable qualities, though, so scientists have now developed a composite made from it.
Ordinarily, when composite items are being manufactured, huge ovens and autoclaves have to be utilized. The production process could soon be much simpler, cheaper and more energy-efficient, however, thanks to the use of carbon nanotube films.
Teardrop trailers typically feature a wood body, but manufacturers have been moving away from the wood. The latest to roll into our view is the High Altitude XT50, a foam-core composite shell with cozy sleeper interior and tailgate galley.
the material is bio-based, biodegradable, recyclable, fire retardant, water repellent and its production process causes no pollution or waste. The post gaura vm kwali transforms pine needles into biodegradable composite material appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Back when we looked at the Leentu pickup camper at Overland Expo West 2017, it was very much a rough prototype. But that rough prototype made it out of testing and development, leading to the well-polished Carbon Camper production model launched this winter. Now Leentu is moving away from expensive IndyCar-grade carbon fiber and onward to a more affordable aluminum honeycomb topper for the
