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.
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.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
