Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd. (AGM, Cleveland, UK) is featuring its synthesized nanoplatelets (A-GNPs). These are combined with AGM’s dispersion and product integration technology to enable A-GNPs to be integrated into existing materials cost effectively and without major disruption to established manufacturing processes.

Reported benefits of A-GNPs are increased toughness, improved barrier protection and high conductivity. AGM has information about SHD Composites Ltd (Sleaford, UK), an early graphene adopter that worked with AGM to develop a graphene-enhanced epoxy prepreg system, MTC9810. AGM says MTC9810 is supported by a strong mechanical database that exhibits outstanding mechanical properties, particularly in fracture toughness, interlaminar shear strength and fatigue life.

    Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.
