Collaborate: Polymer Matrix Composites

By October 18, 2022February 13th, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Mississippi State University’s new technology for polymer matrix composites (PMC) and high-yield carbon composite (CC) structures, which cuts down on production costs and yields higher carbon content. This technology is a prototype technique for the synthesis of high-yield CC/PMC materials. Additionally, this technology is useful for applications such as thin film dielectrics and light-emitting diodes, and as precursors to carbon structures.

In 2021, the polymer market size was $713.9 billion and is expected to reach $1078.5 billion by the end of 2030. The polymer market continues to grow because of its relevance to many industries, with this technology being applicable to missiles, space vehicles, aircraft/aerospace, and vehicles which operate near hypersonic speeds and in extreme temperature environments.

Mississippi State University’s cutting-edge polymer technology puts them at an advantage in this rising industry, and they are looking for industry feedback on their research and potential future collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Mississippi State University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
