  • We have acquired nano structure of CNF in composite by stained TEM.
  • Chemical modification is important for affinity control of CNF for composite.
  • Visualizing is effective for comprehensive modeling by 3D printing

Toray Research Center, Inc. (TRC) is a subsidiary company of Toray Industories, Inc. that is a leading company of carbon fiber and advanced composite material and TRC has been independently promoting supporting business with our advanced analytical technology.  TRC has been improving its own analytical technology for advanced materials and parts for over 40 years with having much collaboration with companies, universities and institutes.  Additionally TRC also has been proposing solution to promote and accelerate customers' R&D activity.  At this time TRC would like to introduce sophisticated analyses for advanced composite materials as reference to R&D activity and manufacturing.
Composite materials is usually utilized with reinforcing to improve physical property by adding fiber filler. Recently Cellulose Nano-Fiber (CNF) has been gathering much attention as promising filler derived from biomass. We unveiled nano structure of CNF composite as CNF is dispersed with several 10 nm-size bundled structure by electron microscopic observation of CNF dispersion state and evaluation of physical properties as well as chemical state of CNF itself. Additionally we also applied these analytic methods to the foamed CNF nanocomposite and found chemically modified CNF can support to achieve high ratio of foaming. We will also introduce the result of reconstruction modelling by 3D TEM and visualization of CNF composite by 3D printing.
