The National Research Council (NRC), Canada’s industrial innovation and research and development organization, will highlight its new autoclave and high-temperature convection oven. The new autoclave combines high-accuracy sensors with a sophisticated control system to precisely and flexibly process all available polymer matrix composite materials. This new equipment supplements NRC’s existing 420°C, 2070 kPa autoclave, which measures1.8m by 6m. Additionally, NRC’s new high-temperature convection oven, coupled with a high-accuracy, multi-step control system will allow research into the post-curing of large composite articles in conjunction with the autoclave system. It will also allow for out-of-autoclave processing of composites including those processed on NRC’s conductive heating test bed. The oven includes thermocouple instrumentation, as well as vacuum and resin pass-through lines for infusion processing and secondary bonding operations. It operates at 540°C and will handle specimens up 1.3 by 1.3 by 1.3m.

During the conference, NRC will present a research paper, titled, "Boron Nitride Nanotube Composites and Their Propertie,"s which introduces boron nitride nanotubes, their potential composites applications, a scalable production method and selected composites examples. M.B. Jakubinek of NRC will present the paper at CAMX 2015 on Tuesday Oct. 27 at 2:00 pm.
