Nanocomposite Fabrics Production System Deadline: 2020-03-24
Award: $150,000 CAD
Open to: Canadian entities*

The National Research Council is seeking a manufacturing process solution that will produce nanocomposite sheets/fabrics comprised of carbon nanotubes and polymer by the roll in order to make the next generation of high-performance multifunctional fabric for fire protection, energy absorption, electromagnetic shielding, etc.

This challenge seeks an apparatus using a new process that will lead to continuous production of CNT-TPU and related slurries, fabric sheets and rolls with a width of at least 30 cm and with similar or better mechanical performance to those achieved in small laboratory and batch scale methods.
