RMX was just selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to proceed with commercialization of the patented plasma surface treatment technology working with ORNL and C.A. Litzler.
Surface treatment is the third major step in carbon fiber production and plasma surface treatment will allow customers to modify the surface of carbon fiber so that less expensive plastics can be used to make parts. This technology should also allow parts makers to use less fiber per part which also reduces the cost of parts. In addition to those benefits the technology could replace a wet chemistry process that produces much more waste and is inherently more troublesome.
This is exciting news for our team and excellent for our partnerships with ORNL and Litzler.
