Address: 1401 Locust Street, Louisville, KY 40206, USA
Short Business Description:
Sunstrand’s domestically sourced materials and innovative processing is helping manufacturers create high performing and sustainable products where replacing plastic and glass fibers was never before thought possible.

Sunstrand’s products and operations have been designed to deliver consistent, high quality materials compatible with a large number of applications and a particular emphasis on providing bulk feedstocks for the plastics, polymer composites and non-woven manufacturing industries.
Long Business Description:

Prior to starting Sunstrand, Dr. Riddle founded Gradient Engineering, Inc in an effort to supply innovative design, material evaluations, research and development services to meet the needs of a growing composites industry. Seeing a growing interest in biocomposites, the team at Gradient began to monitor and research the area. The real work began when Gradient won a Small Business Innovative Research award from the prestigious National Science Foundation. This work pioneered the extraction of bamboo fiber from raw bamboo cane and the conversion of these fibers to forms compatible with polymer composites. During this work it became apparent that there was a need for a reliable supplier of biomaterials that understands the composites industry.
During the summer of 2014, Sunstrand was formed, not only to commercialize on the bamboo developments at Gradient, but to meet the needs of an industry by providing biomaterials and processing services. The company is located in Louisville, Kentucky which is in close proximity to agricultural feedstock suppliers and customers. Sunstrand now works with a variety of feedstocks including bamboo, hemp, kenaf, flax and jute. Sunstrand utilizes a team consisting of Mechanical Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineering Technologists, Material Scientists and Technicians. The team has highly specialized composites design, manufacturing and testing experience. We come from broad industries such as wind energy, paper, snowsports, biomass, automotive, academia and aerospace.

Long Business Description:

The SURAGUS GmbH develops, manufactures and sells eddy current-based testing technology for innovative testing tasks. The company uses new technological opportunities due to advances in signal processing, the availability of more powerful computing technologies and possibilities of new manufacturing and miniaturization methods. Applications are amongst others quality control of structured and unstructured functional layers, quality assurance of carbon fiber materials and classic conductive materials. The company is a spin-off and licensees of the Fraunhofer IKTS Dresden.
The eddy current method utilizes local conductivity variations of the test objects for the characterization of correlated quality characteristics such as thickness, conductivity, homogeneity and purity or physical changes. The complex eddy current signal contains various information about the test object which can be separated in many cases with simple or complex algorithms. Our eddy current testing technology is based on a powerful eddy current electronics with a frequency range from 10 kHz to 100 MHz, which is combined with different sensor concepts depending on the application.
Primary advantages:
Contact-free
Fast (EddyCus Systems measure at a rate of 50.000 measurements per second)
Suitable for automation
Broad portfolio of sensors for different applications

Applications include:
Contactless Conductivity measurement of functional thin films (e.g. TCOs, CNTs, Metallization, Silver-Nanowire)
Non-contact Orientation testing and flaw detection for Carbon fiber composites (undulations, Impacts, gases, thrust faults)
Contactless weight determination in many carbon fiber materials
Determination of gradients of super-alloys
Layer thickness measurement of thin films and coatings from 5 nm thickness
Mapping for errors in conductive layer system (cracks, voids, delaminations, etc.)
