A new formulation technology from M.A. Hanna Color combines laser marking with a super phosphorescence additive science. The proprietary system will enable automakers to design low-cost alternatives to back-lit or illuminated control and instrument panels. In addition, say company researchers, the system allows easy marking for components that traditionally have been difficult to illuminate. Hanna FX Nite Brite requires a minimum ambient light exposure to obtain 10 hrs of high-quality illumination. With the addition of a custom colorant into the base resin of a plastic component, the finished molded part can be laser marked with FastMARK(TM) laser marking. M.A. Hanna Co.: Product Code 4225
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
