Agreement supports carbon reinforcement technology

Applied Nanostructured Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Owens Corning have signed a joint development agreement to support the commercialisation of carbon-enhanced reinforcements.

Under the agreement, the companies plan to combine the carbon infusion technology of ANS with Owens Corning’s reinforcements expertise to create a range of next-generation composite materials.

The companies expect the carbon-enhanced reinforcements to be scalable to meet the demands of large-volume applications and provide mechanical properties with customisable electrical and thermal conductivity.
