Making Wood Hydrophobic
NineSigma, representing a National Supplier of Composite Construction Materials, invites proposals for reducing the absorption of water by powdered wood composites. When a composite material is cut, the wood particles are exposed to the elements, leading to swelling and loss of mechanical and aesthetic qualities. Finding a treatment that is compatible with existing production methods is the key to success.
This invitation is not a complete
description of the project. More information
is available in the Request
for Proposal (RFP) document online at http://www.ninesights.com/docs/DOC-4634

date for Proposal Briefs is Friday,
June 14, 2013.
