Composite parts and structures exposed to high temperatures require a resin matrix designed to withstand the heat. Common resins here include polyimides, bezoxazines, bismaleimides and cyanate esters, among others.
As next-generation aerospace programs demand higher service temperatures in structural and hot section components, a variety of polyimides vie for program approval.
Next-generation aerospace programs demand higher temperatures for structural and hot-section components, fostering advances in thermoset resin chemistry.
Surface Generation is providing digital process control for composites molding that cuts energy use, cycle time and processing pressures while breaking boundaries in thickness, complexity and embedded elements.Polybenzoxazine on the horizon? CompositesWorld
Benzoxazine veteran Dr. Hatsuro Ishida at Case Western Reserve University has developed what he calls the fourth generation of this versatile high-heat, high-strength matrix resin.Structural adhesives, Part I: Industrial CompositesWorld
Today’s myriad chemistry options enable formulators to tailor adhesives to customers' exact application requirements.The markets: Automotive (2016) CompositesWorld
The world’s automakers are a mere two model development cycles from US CAFE and EU emissions compliance due dates in the 2020-2025 timeframe. Faced with a one-two punch in fuel-economy and carbon-dioxide (CO2) emission standards, lightweighting has become a vehicle design imperative.Non-MDA polyimide prepregs and adhesives CompositesWorld
