Resins shape future for composites

Deakin’s new composite materials professor says improved resins will define the next generation of carbon composites.

Lighter, stronger, self-healing and morphing properties are but some of the features of composite materials that will appear in the coming decades.

According to Deakin’s new Professor of Composite Materials, Russell Varley, the only thing holding back such applications is the performance and functionality of today’s resins.

Professor Varley has joined Deakin from CSIRO’s Clayton facility where he spent 26 years honing his polymer chemistry expertise. He has collaborated with companies such as Boeing and Petronas, and with world class polymer experts like Prof Jeff Wiggins from the University of Southern Mississippi and Prof Frank Jones from the University of Sheffield.
