No ovens? No problems! - Scientists develop extremely energy efficient manufacturing method for natural fibre composites
4 May 2023
No more worries about high energy bills for composites manufacturing! Materials scientists at Queen Mary University of London have developed an innovative and energy-efficient method to manufacture natural fibre composites without the need for conventional ovens. This out-of-oven method is based on a smart nanocomposite film that heats and cures the laminates at the desired temperature, reducing energy consumption by up to 95% compared to traditional oven curing methods.
