Warsaw: On 1 September 2021, Technology Partners initiated the two-year “3D printing and nanotechnology for electromagnetic shielding of CFRP structures” (3DforComp) project. The project objective is to develop a technology of printing conductive nanocomposites containing carbon nanotubes onto the surface of carbon fabrics used in the production of carbon composites. It is foreseen that the introduction of high concentrations of carbon nanotubes into the composite structure will the through the thickness electrical conductivity, required for electromagnetic shielding.

The Principal Investigator is Paulina Latko-Durałek, Ph.D. (eng.), to whom the Project will be an opportunity to develop her own research area and achieve the next stage in her scientific career. The work schedule foresees the Principal Investigator’s research internship at SINTEF in Norway and  validation of the technology developed at an enterprise manufacturing composites on an industrial scale.
