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.
A NASA study shows that steel/composite hybrid gears save significant weight, and could mitigate vibration-related noise.Fully transparent, rollable electronics built with graphene/CNT backbone CompositesWorld
Carbon nanotubes and graphene provide mechanical properties and bonding enabling high-temp polyimide resin to provide flexible circuit substrate.SOURCEBOOK 2015: The online edition CompositesWorld
Welcome to the online SOURCEBOOK, the searchable, updatable, Internet-based counterpart to CompositesWorld's annually published print SOURCEBOOK.The matrix (2015) CompositesWorld
The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here's a guide to selection.Composites 2015: A multitude or markets CompositesWorld
Although the effects of the 2008 global financial downturn are still felt in some sectors, the composites industry, in general, showed health, growth and a renewed focus on innovation.
