Materials Outovation® Practice
The Materials Outovation® practice focuses on businesses that can deliver growth by leveraging the composition, structure, properties, and processing of materials to provide customized performance in a product. The practice systematically seeks innovation by looking “outside” leveraging the process of Materials Outovation®.
Materials include metals, alloys, technical ceramics, glasses, high end polymers (fluoropolymers, silicones, aramids), composites (glass and carbon fiber), abrasives, adhesives, coatings, cements, concrete, and others. Companies utilize a customer co-development model – listening carefully to critical customer needs.
Processing techniques include melting, casting, rolling, extruding, co-injection molding, powder processing, welding, brazing, laser processing, CVD, PVD, and additive manufacturing.
