Andara LLC (Sheboygan, WI, US) is featuring its line of styrene-free NOVOC resins for use in coatings, composites and other applications. NOVOC resins contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and are non-flammable and low odor while maintaining superior performance. Andara is introducing three new products at CAMX. NOVOXY 9000 Series is a low-color, UV-resistant epoxy that offers high hardness (Shore D 84), easy application and clarity. It is available in benzyl alcohol-free and nonal-phenol-free versions. NOVOC 600 foam system is a closed-cell, moisture-resistant, rigid, elastomeric foam suitable for use in cores and sandwiches. NOVORTIC 200 adhesive is a side-by-side, two-component, UV-stable, chemical-resistant adhesive with 100% solids and good weatherability.


  • Advanced materials for aircraft interiors

    Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.

  • Recycled carbon fiber update: Closing the CFRP lifecycle loop

    Commercial production of recycled carbon fiber currently outpaces applications for it, but materials characterization and new technology demonstrations promise to close the gap.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
