This issue of High-Tech Materials presents material innovations in composites and 3D printing. The TOE covers biocomposites that can Impart high strength and lightweight characteristics, a high-performance engineering filament composed of industrial-grade modified acrylonitrile styrene acrylate, and monofilaments made from bio-based thermoplastics. Amorphous resin compounds for large format additive manufacturing (LFAM), and a bio-ink for 3D printing of tissues and living cells using rhCollagen are also profiled.
The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
