Composites producers

Carbon Nexus offers a range of capabilities which are of interest to composites manufacturers.

We can perform a wide range of value-adding chemical and thermal analysis of matrix resins (both thermoset and thermoplastic), using our suite of advanced analytical techniques, including

  • Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
  • Thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA)
  • Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA)
  • Fourier transform IR spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging

We are specialists in matrix resin development, including self-healing matrices, thermoset matrices, thermoplastic matrices, and matrices for challenging environments.

We can provide composite manufacturing process development and optimisation capabilities, and through the wider resources of Deakin University we can enable automation solutions and Industry 4.0 development skills.

We can provide small-scale prototype manufacturing or material testing services.
