Wagner to present on use of shear thickening fluids in protective equipment

Norman Wagner, Unidel Robert L. Pigford Chaired Professor in the University of Delaware’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, will deliver an American Chemical Society webinar, “Future Protective Materials for First Responders, Football Players, and Astronauts: Shear Thickening Fluids,” on Thursday, Sept. 1, from 2-3 p.m.

The following is a description of the presentation from the ACS website:

The next generation of protective equipment is looking a lot sleeker. Shear thickening fluids (STFs) are novel field-responsive materials that can be engineered to be useful nanocomposites for enhanced ballistic and impact protection. Astronauts, first responders and football players may all soon be benefiting from this technology. Norman Wagner of STF Technologies and the University of Delaware will discuss the formulation, properties, and development of commercial applications of STFs.
