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.
Every paradigm-shifting invention throughout human history has been met with skepticism. CW editor-in-chief Jeff Sloan says the composites industry has need of those willing to attempt what most believe impossible.Incremental thinking just won’t cut it! CompositesWorld
Composites industry consultant and regular CW columnist Dale Brosius says if this industry is to have a future that goes anywhere profitable, then we've got to get off the road we're on and map out a whole new way to think about the tasks at hand.New aerocomposites niche: Helicopter transmission gears?
