Abstract
The purpose of this phase II SBIR effort is to further develop, optimize and commercialize the low-cost, innovative combination of the R&D 100 award winning water-soluble and non-water soluble tooling materials developed by Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc.(ACR) for the fabrication of polymer matrix composites. Specifically, the objectives of the phase II effort are to develop a tooling material combination that will enable the Navy and other DoD components as well as commercial entities the ability tofabricate low-cost, low-volume production run tooling capable of withstanding polymer composite curing temperatures ranging from 250¿F to 600¿F.BENEFITS: The tooling technology developed in this program will have a significant impact upon the compositesmanufacturing community. In particular, this technology will enable more efficient, cost-effective methods of fabricating composite bodies used in a whole host of industries.
