  1. Cryo-malleable elastomeric products

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/cryo-malleable-elastomeric-products

    Cryo-malleable elastomeric products (Dr. Cornish) Natural rubber can retain flexibility down to temperature lower than synthetic polymers, around-50⁰C.  However, this is not low enough (remember the Challenger disaster?).   We have a natural rubber that h ...

  2. Latex foams

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/latex-foams

    Development of latex foams (Dr. Cornish) We have begun developing open cell foam products.  Our commercial-scale tape casting machine can make large areas of fully bio-based sustainable foams and films.  We already have interest from a US company that wan ...

  3. Processing Optimization

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/processing-optimization

    Processing Optimization (Dr. Cornish) We have built two pilot plants in our off-site facility, the larger one funded by ODOD to extract inulin and rubber from Kazak dandelion and the other for latex extraction.   The pilot plants can be used with multiple ...

  4. Hydroponics

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/hydroponics

    Hydroponics (Dr. Cornish) We have built a novel hydroponics table that allows tap roots to grow in their normal vertical orientation.  The system supports an 8 by 8 fully randomized design. Initial experiments proved that adventitious roots can make rubbe ...

  5. NIR models for in vivo quantification of secondary products

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/nir-models-vivo-quantification-secondary-products

    Development of NIR models for in vivo quantification of secondary products (Dr. Cornish)  We are developing rapid methods of rubber quantification within Kazak Dandelion and Guayule. We used a portable spectrophotometer which uses near infrared light and ...

    Second GSO meeting in Room 219, Agriculutral Engineering Building. ...

  7. Strippable coatings for control of infectious disease

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/strippable-coatings-control-infectious-disease

    Strippable coatings for control of infectious disease and particulate clean-up (Dr. Cornish) We are developing equipment and formulations to apply guayule latex to infectious disease wards, or to employ in- and out-door areas contaminated with dangerous p ...

  8. Guayule natural rubber (GNR) nanofibers

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/guayule-natural-rubber-gnr-nanofibers

    Creation of guayule natural rubber (GNR) nanofibers via electrospinning with co-polymer blends of GNR and FDA-approved implantable plastics (Dr. Cornish) Many bio-plastic polymers are too brittle for wide application.  We work on blends of GNR with PHVB, ...

  9. Diluent and reinforcing macro, micro and nano-fillers

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/diluent-and-reinforcing-macro-micro-and-nano-fillers

    Evaluation of diluent and reinforcing macro, micro and nano-fillers for bio-elastomers and plastics produced from agricultural and food processing wastes (Dr. Cornish) Many elastomeric, plastic and thermoplastic products contain non-polymeric materials.  ...

  10. Type I and Type IV latex allergy circumallergenic latex films

    https://fabe.osu.edu/research/type-i-and-type-iv-latex-allergy-circumallergenic-latex-films

    Development of Type I and Type IV latex allergy circumallergenic latex films (Dr. Cornish) We have developed the first Type I and Type IV circumallergenic natural rubber thin film, with mechanical properties superior to thin film elastomers commercially a ...
