Dyco Industries propose the use of a proprietary advanced hybrid polymer that is extremely fast and efficient to create, and when produced retains unsurpassed properties and characteristics. Utilizing a combination of proprietary materials with a proprietary (non-heat injection molding) process, Dyco will use variable density solutions to construct components that accurately reflect the physics desired by the tracked vehicles, as well as the bushings. The solution will utilize dense materials and composites not available in traditional manufacturing, combined with unique process and bonding capabilities. The Dyco team will define and document a prototype design and manufacturing specifications to achieve reduced cost and manufacturing time products with tested physical attributes and characteristics that will surpass the requirements stated in the SBIR. By leveraging combinations of a proprietary manufacturing process and materials, the design will allow increased manufacturing control and provide products at dramatically reduced costs and vastly improved physical properties.
