Award List:

Recycling Composite Scrap and Waste Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Charles L. Segal, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,895.00
Abstract:
Recycling of composites manufacturing scrap and end-of-life waste is expected to become more important as the use of composite materials expands into different applications. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) wastes especially are a potentially valuable source of recycled carbon fibers if an… More

SBIR Phase I: Utilization of Recycled Carbon Fibers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Charles B. Segal, DSc
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will use recycled carbon fibers to fabricate composite materials suitable for use in the transportation sector. As recycled carbon fibers have properties that differ from those of virgin carbon fibers, conventional composite processing… More

Technologies for the Rapid Curing of Composite Parts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Charles L. Segal, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Certain polymer resins used in the manufacturing of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) aerospace components have relatively long autoclave cure cycles on the order of 6 hours or more. These long cure cycles cause bottlenecks and inefficiencies when producing composite parts with these thermoset… More

SBIR Phase I: Use of Recycled Carbon Fibers in Sheet Molding Compounds (SMC)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Charles Segal, MS
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project will develop materials processing technologies to effectively utilize recycled carbon fiber (RCF) derived from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) thermoset wastes as fiber reinforcement in structural sheet molding compounds (SMC). As… More
