This issue of the High-Tech Materials TOE covers innovations in fire resistant materials, heat resistant materials, and fire retardant materials. The materials can be used in a variety of applications such as building & construction, textiles, electronics, aerospace, and spacecraft. One of the innovations profiled in the TOE is based on a material that can render substances such as wood or paper fire resistant, hydrophobic, as well as develop antimicrobial property.
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, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
