This innovative technology will be useful in a broad spectrum of commercial applications wherever strength-to-weight performance is crucial, especially at elevated and/or cryogenic temperatures. Specific applications in the automotive market sector include selectively reinforced aluminum and magnesium castings, flywheels for hybrid vehicles, liners for lightweight composite tanks used on alternative fuel vehicles, and other types of storage tanks. This technology could also make its way into the sporting goods market incorporated into golf club shafts, tennis rackets, and bicycle frames. Touchstone has conducted preliminary discussions with True Temper Sports, the world's largest manufacturer of golf shafts. The proposed work will move the technology closer to a point to be tailored to meet the technical and manufacturing requirements for golf club shafts.
