Biomaterials Research Effort Underway

A two-year research effort at the National Composite Center (NCC) in Kettering, Ohio, aims to encourage fabricators and end users to use nano-resins and bio-resins.

A scientific team at NCC’s Bio-Lite Technical Center of Excellence and a new bio-composite laboratory on the Dayton Campus for Advanced Materials Technologies is screening mechanical properties from a large pool of biomaterials submitted from sources worldwide.

Ashland Inc., Dublin, Ohio, and glass fiber reinforcements supplier Owens Corning, Toledo, Ohio, are supporting NCC’s materials screening efforts.
