Jacob Meyer, University of Illinois alumnus and co-founder of ATSP Innovations, announced on June 18 that ATSP Innovations was selected for a Phase I SBIR by NASA. Their proposal “Extreme Environment Tribological Characterization of Advanced Bearing Materials” aims to advance the materials available in the field for high-performance, space exploration devices.
ATSP Innovations was founded in 2010, and it focuses on making the best performing polymers in the world. The company created Aromatic Thermosetting coPolyesters, which can be tailored for tribological, adhesive, structural, and electronic applications.
Thermal stability, low outgassing, and bond exchange reactions are some of the aspects behind the advanced bearing materials referenced in the company’s proposal.
