Mussel Polymers Announces New Multi-Functional Carbon and Aramid Fiber Coating for Stronger Lighter Reinforced Composites
BETHLEHEM, Pa., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon fiber reinforced materials are widely used in products from golf clubs to the world's most advanced aircraft due to their high strength, stability, and light weight. Mussel Polymers, Inc., a specialty materials and coatings company, announced today that it has successfully coated carbon and aramid fibers with its Poly(catechol-styrene) (PCS), which is a step forward in producing lighter, stronger fiber reinforced composites.
Mussel Polymers, Inc. Announces Breakthrough in the Treatment of Sensitive Teeth
BETHLEHEM, Pa., Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mussel Polymers, Inc. has demonstrated that its proprietary Poly(Catechol-Styrene) molecule induces the mineralization of dentin (a layer of tooth material), specifically causing the deposition of Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP). The deposition of ACP on dentin is expected to help alleviate the pain of 'dentin hypersensitivity.' The patented MPI tooth sensitivity treatment is expected to be longer-lasting than currently used non-surgical treatments.
There are few substances that coat surfaces better than polydopamine. It seems to stick to nearly everything, from nanoparticles to Teflon, from cathodes to ceramics, from bones to airplanes, and from printed circuit boards to metals. In fact, over the past decade thousands of papers have been published on the use and properties of this bio-inspired material.
