Award List:

Novel Flame and Impact Resistant Foam Core

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: David F. Erb Jr., Manager, New Market Devel
Award Amount: $99,856.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to develop new processing methods and materials packages for foam core materials that can be used in military and civilian applications that call for ballistic and flame resistance. The research work will build on anexisting program in the area of ballistic… More

Novel Flame and Impact Resistant Foam Core

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: David F. Erb Jr.
Award Amount: $748,975.00
Abstract:
Our country is now faced with new challenging terrorist threats to our civil infrastructure and transportation segments. Meeting these challenges will require high performance material developments on a grand scale, which have the capability of meeting minimum ballistic requirements from handgun… More

Hybrid Textile-Based Multi-Layered Flexible System for Penetration Resistance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF MAINE
Principal Investigator: Stan Farrell, Program Engineer
Award Amount: $99,700.00
RI Contact: Habib Dagher
Abstract:
Tex Tech Industries has an effective through thickness reinforced hybrid ballistic fabric that has recently been introduced into the ballistic armor market for police force body armor. Fabric made with this technology was tested for V-50 results using both 9mm projectiles (124g Full Metal jacket)… More

Hybrid Textile-Based Multi-Layered Flexible System for Penetration Resistance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF MAINE AT ORONO
Principal Investigator: Stan Farrell, Project Engineer
Award Amount: $749,976.00
RI Contact: Habib Dagher
Abstract:
Tex Tech Industries has developed a through thickness reinforced (3-D) hybrid ballistic fabric that has recently been introduced into the ballistic armor market. Phase I testing found that for 9mm and .22 FPS projectiles, the hybrid fabric was 9 to 13% be

Development and Manufacturing of Lightweight Textile Fire Barrier for Furniture and Mattresses

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Stan Farrell
Award Amount: $87,292.00
Abstract:
New fire barrier methods are necessary to protect furniture and mattresses from fire. Current California (and soon National) regulations require mattresses to be able to pass the mattress fire burn test. Typical barrier fabrics use self extinguishing fibers with high limiting oxygen index (LOI) to… More

Development and Manufacturing of Lightweight Textile Fire Barrier for Furniture and Mattresses

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $300,000.00
Abstract:
Through this NIST SBIR program, Tex Tech Industries is developing furniture and mattress fire blocking materials. Fire barrier methods are necessary to protect furniture and mattresses from fire. In Phase I, Tex Tech used a variety of fibers to make and evaluate fibers for fire barriers. In Phase… More
