LOOKING FOR a low-cost space mirror substrate that was lightweight with exceptional thermal stability, NASA solicited proposals for an SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) grant. We created a proposal to utilize patented X-MAT® technologies to build the solution, and so began our partnership with NASA.
This project has allowed us to explore and demonstrate the far-reaching capabilities of X-MAT® technology. We developed the X-MAT® OC1 material system, with a density of 1.69 g/cc and coefficient of thermal expansion of 0.75 ppm, to meet NASA’s specific needs. Through this project, we have made enormous strides in scalability, going from a 75mm (3-inch) diameter scale factor to a 600mm (2 ft.) diameter scale factor.
We are currently in Phase 2 of the grant with NASA, working on scaling our processes to make these new larger-scale mirrors. We look forward to sending our mirrors into space for future NASA missions.
AS WORLD LEADERS in electronics printing technologies, Nano Dimension creates cutting-edge heterogenous 3D printing systems. Currently only able to 3D print metals and plastics, Nano Dimension was looking to expand their capabilities into 3D printed ceramics. We partnered with them for a Space Florida grant to explore the possibilities of X-MAT®, with a focus on utilization for various applications in the aerospace industry.
We are collaborating with the team at Nano Dimension to create a 3D printable ink formulation.
3D printing is a key driver in the progress of manufacturing processes, and this project has allowed us to fully understand the extensive capabilities of X-MAT® in a 3D printing environment, and the implications our material can have in the aerospace industry. Our future goal is to help Nano Dimension commercialize the 3D printing of ceramics utilizing their equipment.
JUST IMAGINE WHAT X-MAT® CAN DO FOR YOU.
We believe our technology has the power to disrupt many industries. Potential applications include the utilization of X-MAT® for:
ROOF TILES AND BUILDING MATERIALS
LONGER LASTING BATTERY MATERIALS
OIL AND GAS PROPPANTS
LIDAR mirrors for self-driving vehicles
The extraordinary properties of X-MAT® mean that the far-reaching capabilities can impact many diverse markets.
