Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA)
Product Development Engineer
Eric Argentieri is a Product Development Engineer at Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA). Mainly focused on energy storage fiber, he leads the thermo-drawable supercapacitor project. His efforts have resulted in a reproducible, scalable supercapacitor fiber by minimizing mixing behavior via rheological modifications within the gel chemistry. With reductions in external dimensions, he has made an energy storage system that can be seamlessly integrated into a fabric. Prior experiences include work with W.R. Grace as a Research Chemist within their building envelope group developing novel, sprayable air barrier systems. Also, working as a Graduate Researcher within the Mazumder laboratory group on transparent conductors for Electrodynamic Screen (EDS) technology to actively clean solar panels. Eric holds an MS and BS in Materials Science from Boston University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute respectively.
