31 March 2009 Quality control measures for SMP environmental sensors
Author Affiliations +
Research and development efforts at Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) have led to commercialization efforts on several projects where shape memory polymer (SMP) materials are being transitioned from laboratory development to manufacturing and production. During this process, quality-control efforts are of vital importance for successfully implementing smart materials technologies in commercial applications. Here, CRG reports quality-control procedures being developed for mass production of environmental exposure sensors. These measures include chemical analysis procedures for insuring resin quality at the front-end of the production line as well as back-end quality-assurance tests for production validation on the SMP product.
