High-temperature materials specialists Renegade Materials Corp. and Maverick Corp. (both in Miamisburg, OH, US) are featuring their prepregs and adhesives, powered by Maverick-developed, non-MDA polyimide resins. Renegade Materials’ exclusive 700°F RM-1100 polyimide prepreg is qualified or in qualification at multiple international aerospace OEMs. RM-1100 and Renegade Materials’ exclusive 600°F MVK-14 FreeForm prepregs are approved for export and offer non-MDA options to replace PMR-15 as well as titanium in primary structure.
Maverick Corp. is featuring its family of high-temperature polyimide coatings and RTM resins, including MVK-2066, MVK-10 and RTM-1100. Renegade Materials is promoting its BMI product line including prepreg systems (RM-3002 and RM-3004), infusion resins (RM-3000 and RM-3010) and adhesives (RM-3011, RM-3006 and RM-3007). Renegade Materials’ RM-3004, says the company, is the most mature out-of-autoclave (OOA)-processable BMI prepreg system in the industry, with applications in both aerospace structures and tooling. Renegade Materials has completed several key commercial aerospace qualifications of these BMI products and is now in high-rate production supporting these programs.
Renegade Materials also is featuring its low-dielectric prepreg system, RM-2014-LDk-TK. This modified epoxy system is said to offer cyanate ester-like dielectric properties at a much lower cost, and it processes in or out of autoclave. Booth Y20.
A practical examination of the complexities of adhesive selection.
As composites take a larger part (and form larger parts) in the aerospace structures sector, it’s not just a make-it-or-break-it proposition.
Fast-reacting resins and speedier processes are making economical volume manufacturing possible.
