In this STTR project, Akita Innovations, Adaptive3D and Prof. Ronald Smaldone will team to develop highly loaded, porous MOF elastomer resin systems that can be fabricated into unique architectures via digital light processing (DLP) additive manufacture. The project will leverage Prof. Smaldone’s unique research at the interface of organic framework materials and additive manufacture with Adaptive3D’s expertise in additive manufacture of novel elastomers and Akita’s expertise in chemical synthesis and material design for PPE systems.  The ultimate aim of our collaboration will be to deliver materials and manufacturing methods that will enable development of lighter and more effective PPE.
