Goodrich, UDRI to develop production capabilities for advanced nanomaterial

  • 21-Jul-2010 03:04 EDT

Goodrich Corp. will work with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) to produce an innovative nanomaterial with metal-like conductive properties into a rugged composite structure, in sizes suitable for large-scale commercial aerospace applications. Under a recently announced award from the state of Ohio's Third Frontier initiative, UDRI will collaborate with Goodrich and two other companies, Renegade Materials and Owens-Corning, to build and equip a facility capable of producing the "fuzzy fiber" nanomaterial—known as NAHF-X—and resin composite sheets up to 60 inches wide. The NAHF-X material was originally developed at UDRI, and Goodrich intends to use the hybrid composite material in new-generation nacelles, as well as explore other applications including aircraft structural health monitoring, wheels and brakes, and electrical de-icing.
