FORMAX enters knowledge transfer group for composites

FORMAX, a manufacturer of carbon fibre and speciality reinforcements, has entered a knowledge transfer programme with the Polymer Composites Group, which operates within the Materials, Mechanics and Structures Research division of Nottingham University.

The collaboration between FORMAX and the Polymer Composites Group, which focuses on the processing and performance of thermoset and thermoplastic matrices, has been facilitated through the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) scheme.

The two-year project aims to develop a comprehensive material characterisation capability and advanced simulation methodology for composites, and will have a strong automotive focus.
