Published: 9 Mar 2018

This issue of High-Tech Materials TOE profiles developments in metal foam technology. The TOE focuses on development of stabilized aluminum foam products for ballistic applications, an emissions control technology based on alloy foam for use in vehicles, and investigation about the thermal performance of automotive thermoelectric generators (TEGs) manufactured using metal foams. Commercial-grade open-pore metal foams for use in heat exchangers, fuel cells, and filtration technologies are also profiled. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Metal foams, stabilized aluminum foam, alloy foam, automotive thermoelectric generators
