3A Composites (Sins, Switzerland) has introduced AIREXT10, the first product derivative based on the new technology AIREX GEN2, a highly industrialized production process introduced by 3A Composites last year. AIREXT10 features what is said to be a homogenous cell structure and highly enhanced mechanical characteristics when compared to 3A's AIREX T92. The company says its new direct extrusion process allows for consistent material properties and good quality control. AIREXT10 is targeted toward applications such as marine and wind energy, as well as nascent markets with large potential for sandwich technologies such as the automotive industry.
