Contract: W31P4Q-13-C-0078
Award Amount: $999,945.00


In the Phase II effort, GTL will build upon the foundation provided by the Phase I effort to develop a family of SMFB products that can be used by thermoplastic matrix composite (TPMC) developers and manufacturers to efficiently and affordably fuse TPMC components together. The effort will seek to develop several variants of the products that are compatible with popular thermoplastic composites. A small quantity of each of these products will be fabricated and subjected to laboratory verification testing. The products will then be used to fuse together relevant scale TPMC components to demonstrate the functionality of the technology. Following the demonstration, samples of each SMFB product will be delivered to the Army for independent evaluation. At the conclusion of this effort, the Army and TPMC developers will have access to a reliable and affordable means to fusion bond concentric cylinders, while GTL will enter the TPMC bonding marketplace with a series of SMFB products.
