A. Schulman and its partner Prodways Technologies have partnered in the development of PA6-12T, a new engineered 3D printing material that incorporates glass into plastic.

Research currently being performed at The Ohio State University (OSU) is aimed at the development of advanced heart valve replacements that should reduce both the medications and operations that are needed for recipients.

One of Youngstown Business Incubator’s 30 Portfolio Companies has developed a new patent-pending material called AMClad that rivals the compression strength of ABS Polymers.

Dismayed by an excessively large quantity of low-cost oxycodone pills prescribed to his wife after a surgery, Matthew Becker began to wonder about nonopioid alternatives for pain management. His answer may be in polymers.

With a goal of driving awareness on the issue of ocean plastic pollution, Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G), in collaboration with recycling expert TerraCycle, has developed the Fairy Ocean Plastic bottle.

With 20,415 industrial robots in use in 2015, Ohio ranks 2nd in the United States in the use of robots in manufacturing. That’s a 19% growth of industrial robots per year over the last five years.

Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands found that the areas of medicine and robotics are finding more and more use for materials that are able to adapt their shapes. As a result, an Eindhoven graduate student began sample preparation and experimental testing on a new photoactive polymer film that propels itself forward when exposed to light.

Hydrocarbon polymers with a high oil absorption capacity have been developed by a Penn State research team headed by Mike Chung, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering. While Chung’s research shows great potential to aid in oil spill recovery and cleanup, it has also garnered him a large grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

This July, the IACMI Summer Members Meeting will showcase new projects, technologies, partners, members and advancements in IACMI technology areas.
