Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) rebar has brought a solid construction revolution that is in full positioning with Saudi Aramco efforts to encourage nonmetallic solutions

Related Keywords: acidic solutions, alkaline solutions, fibers, FRP rebar, liquid resin, polymer, Saudi Aramco, thermal variation

Saudi Arabia
Summary: 
Saudi Aramco collaborated with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, and King Saud University, on separate projects to evaluate the performance and durability of FRP rebar and FRP sheets under the typical local environmental conditions specifically considering exposure to alkaline solutions (i.e., seawater and subkha), acidic solutions, thermal variation, the outdoors, and fire, a few years back.

The results of these studies confirmed the excellent potential for the use of these materials on new construction and for the strengthening or repair of existing structures.

The conclusion of Phase 1 of the DuPont, Fibrtec project validates the advancements that can be made in the carbon fiber composites production field

Related Keywords: automated fiber placement, carbon fiber, CFRP manufacturing process, fabric, fabric formation, Fibrtec’s, glass fiber-based fabrics, layers the fabrics with thermoplastic resin films, lower cost continuous fiber reinforced polymer, polyamide resin, pseudo-fabrics, thermoplastic materials, weaving method, woven

Knoxville
Summary: 
This project offers a new CFRP manufacturing process when compared to the two other typically deployed processes which have significant drawbacks that limit their mainstream, high-volume use in the automotive and aerospace industries. One mainstream current technique weaves dry carbon fiber tows into a fabric, layers the fabrics with thermoplastic resin films, and later heats and compresses them into a well-consolidated composite. While this method is ultimately effective in creating a carbon fiber fabric, the process has several drawbacks.

Australian company comes up with an extensive new way to produce rayon fibers

Related Keywords: biomass, cellulose, cotton or wool, fibers, Nanollose, rayon, rayon fibers, wood pulp or plant fibers, wood- or plant-derived cellulose

Austrailia
Summary: 
To produce rayon the old fashioned way it needs chemically intense processing of wood pulp or plant fibers. The cellulose that’s extracted is treated with caustic soda, carbon disulfide, and sulfuric acid. You’re no doubt familiar with how nasty sulfuric acid can be, but carbon disulfide is usually dangerous stuff, too and it’s exposure can lead to cramps, muscle weakness, and a loss of feeling in the extremities.
