The European network Groupe Gazechim Composites stand at the Paris Air Show 2015 is co-located with Hexcel (Stamford, CT, US). Groupe Gazechim Composites is an official distributor of Hexcel products, and their affiliate Composites Distribution has the industry approval to distribute Hexcel’s aerospace materials, supporting the growing demand for composites driven by their greater use in aerospace structures.

Composites Distribution is launching the
 new CAB concept (Composite AeroBox)
 from Sunaero (Hall 2B, Stand B85). This
 toolkit has different compartments 
for the storage of frozen prepregs, ancillary
 materials that are kept at ambient
 temperature and a hot bonder control panel, all contained within an easy to transport box that holds everything that is required for a quick repair of a composite part out in the field.

Hexcel’s range of products developed for composite repair includes HexPly M20 prepreg and HexForce carbon fabrics. HexPly M20 prepreg provides high temperature performance from a low energy cure cycle at 120-130°C (250-265°F) and can be processed out in the field using a vacuum bag and a heater blanket or hot bonder - or in an autoclave. These materials are approved by the Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC) that sets global aerospace standards for composite repair operations.
