Oven-cured, vacuum-bagged prepregs show promise in production primary structures.
Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.
Composites Technology Development's first commercial tank in the Type V category presages growth of filament winding in storage of compressed gases.
