High-Performance Composites

Boyce Components LLC (Phoenix, Ariz.) recently premiered its new electrically conductive K-factor resin system. Billed by the company as a "spray-on composite heating system,"the resin combines the properties of unsaturated resins with conductive additives that contain Pyrograf III carbon nanofibers, developed by Pyrograf Products Inc., a subsidiary of Applied Sciences (Cedarville, Ohio). The resin enables composites manufacturers to incorporate an electrically conductive resin layer capable of resistive heating into a composite mold or a finished composite product. In-mold application enables quick heating of tool surfaces and faster cure times. Used in parts, the resin adds a heating component for applications such as de-icing and seat warming. The company also provides controllers, thermocouples and accessories that enable precise control and as-needed ramping of temperature, using standard 110 VAC current. boycecomponents.gocomp.biz/1, apsci.gocomp.biz/4
