CLEVELAND, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Peak Nanosystems LLC, by means of its wholly-owned subsidiary PolymerPlus LLC, is partnering with Case Western Reserve College researchers and the U.S. Military Fight Capabilities Improvement Command’s Military Analysis Laboratory to develop new manufacturing approaches for cutting-edge, cost-effective manufacturing of high-performance, light-weight polymeric supplies.
The Military’s new five-year dedication awards $5.four million (with the potential for as much as $11 million) to Case Western with a portion subcontracted to PolymerPlus LLC. Based on the Military’s award discover, a portion of the funds will go to 2 different subcontractors.
PolymerPlus, recently acquired in a multi-million-dollar deal by Texas-based Peak Nanosystems LLC, is the first business accomplice for the venture. The corporate will develop and scale-up processing methods for ultra-tough layered plastics created in collaboration with the Case Western Reserve researchers.
“Our partnership with the U.S. Military and Case Western Reserve College to advance polymer analysis builds on a robust basis of collaboration now we have efficiently developed with Case over the previous couple of years,” stated Chad Lewis, president of Peak Nanosystems.”
The groups will work with the U.S. Military Fight Capabilities Command’s Military Analysis Laboratory, in Aberdeen Proving Floor, Maryland, to assist design parts and new manufacturing approaches for high-performance composites that with potential purposes in solider-borne and transportation safety programs and weapons.
“The power of Peak Nanosystems to manufacture at scale promising polymeric supplies combos and processing circumstances developed at Case Western Reserve College is essential to delivering enough portions for rigorous filed testing at ARL,” says Gary E. Wnek, lead investigator on the venture and Chair of the Division of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at CWRU.
The venture was supported by two Ohio members of Congress, Rep. Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), and Rep. Tim Ryan (OH-13). Each are members of the Home Appropriations Subcommittee on Protection.
Kaptur famous Ohio’s “storied manufacturing legacy,” particularly with regard to “analysis and growth of merchandise that assist our nationwide protection.
“Partnerships corresponding to this can carry that legacy ahead,” she stated, including that she applauded the ingenuity of the scientists concerned “as exemplars for future generations to know how science can enhance our weapons and armor programs to maintain our service members protected.”
