Recent Developments

July 2021 Researchers in Singapore have invented a smart foam material that allows robots to sense adjacent objects and, like human skin, repair itself when harmed. The researchers injected the substance with small metal particles and placed tiny electrodes beneath the foam's surface to mimic the human sense of touch. AiFoam, or artificially innervated foam, is a highly elastic polymer that combines fluoropolymer with a surface tension-lowering chemical. According to experts at the National University of Singapore, this allows the spongy material to fuse into one piece when cut easily. The researchers injected the substance with small metal particles and placed tiny electrodes beneath the foam's surface to mimic the human sense of touch.

CYMAT took to the international market to launch its joint-venture with a Spain-based company - Alucoil SA. this venture is likely to function for the production of aluminum compost panels with aluminum foam cores. This joint venture is likely to help in increasing the geographical presence of the company in the international market.
