Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-002
Budget: 09/11/10 - 03/11/11
PI: F. Tsai

Novana is developing an innovative nanocomposite based material with unique and significant anti-ballistic properties. This material can not only absorb high impact projectile piercing energy but it is also lighter and less expensive than traditional anti-ballistic materials. Contrary to the current practice of using expensive fabrics made of hi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corp.

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: F. Tsai

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is seeking to develop and commercialize a novel method for recycling immiscible polymer (IP) wastes into value-added products. In this new method, the IP waste is converted into highly-orientated filaments with a surface of a relatively lower melting point polymer and a core of a re...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will control the shape of microextruded polymers (microprofiles) using a sheath fluid at the exit of the extruder. Microprofiles are defined as continuous filaments having a non-circular cross-section with precision microfeatures and a mean diameter of 100 microns or less. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project explores the technical feasibility and commercial potential of an innovative process for converting immiscible polymer wastes into self-reinforced high-performance composites. The process entails creating fibers with sheath/core morphology to self-reinforce the resulting com...
