Materials and Design Exchange

The Design Exchange - brings together the communities of design and materials technology in order to stimulate innovation, promote the transfer of materials knowledge and improve the competitiveness of UK business.
The Design Exchange is part of the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), forging a link between designers and other sectors of the KTN concerned with metals, plastics, textiles and the full range of modern materials.
The Design Exchange offers a physical resource in the form of a Materials Resource Centre (MRC). MRC is filled with shelves of small material and component samples in slots. Samples range from hemp fibres and paper made from recycled sheep poo to flooring systems made from an aluminium honeycomb core sandwiched between glass skins and expanded PTFE vascular prostheses.
