  2. STTR Phase II: Durable Functional Coloring of Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Structural Composites for High Strength Material Applications

    SBC: The Shepherd Color Company            Topic: CT

    The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II project will demonstrate the ability to color structural composite parts made of thermoplastic polymers reinforced with long (3 mm to 25 mm in length) glass fibers. Today the options are black or natural resin color which limits their design appeal. Colorants are not used in thermoplastic composites for structural applications becaus ...
