Huntsman Advanced Materials (The Woodlands, Texas, USA) will launch three new high-performance benxoxazine resins for out-of-autoclave (OOA) composite manufacturing, and a new liquid shim adhesive for aerospace applications. In addition, Huntsman will showcase high-performance adhesives and composite resins used in automotive, aerospace and industrial applications.
Huntsman also will present two papers at CAMX: "High-Performance, Rapid-Cure Liquid Shim for Aerospace Applications," by Tim Truong and K.P. Subrahmanian; and "Evaluation of Two-Component Structural PU Adhesive for Joining Dissimilar Materials in the Transportation Sector – A Case Study," by Hans Kaul and Saeil Jeon (Volvo Group Trucks Technology).
Editor PickOOA composites in next-generation launch systems
As United Launch Alliance ULA replaces Atlas and Delta with next-generation launch rockets under the Vulcan name, supplier Ruag Space has been selected to provide lower cost/improved quality out-of-autoclave fabrication of Vulcan’s composite primary structures. Ruag will manufacture 5.4m payload fairings and 400-series interstage adapters for ULA’s Atlas V rocket.
