Infusion specialist Airtech International (Huntington Beach, Calif., USA) is featuring several products at its CAMX 2014 booth:

  • Airflow 100R, a durable high-temperature and high-pressure autoclave hose, is now available with 90° fixed end fittings on one or both ends. The silicone rubber outer protective sleeve encases a braided stainless steel covering a PTFE inner tube supported with a flexible steel spring conduit. Its design prevents collapse from vacuum or autoclave pressures. 
  • Vac-Gauge 40D is a versatile digital vacuum gauge used for leak detection and vacuum determinations under the vacuum bag. The gauge offers vacuum readings in four selectable units: mBar, mmHg, inHg, and Kpa.
  • Airtech Vacuum Test Unit is a compact, lightweight and reportedly easy-to-use device to test in-service equipment or to check equipment that has undergone maintenance, like seal replacements on vacuum valves or end fitting replacements on vacuum hoses.
  • Airpad HTX is an uncured non-silicone rubber that can be made into caul sheets and flexible mandrels. 
  • Toolwright  3 and Toolwright 5 are extruded fluoropolymer films coated with silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive. The yellow color is highly visible on most substrates; the material offers high elongation and tensile strength.
  • Wrightlease 2 is an extruded fluoropolymer film coated with silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive. The orange color is highly visible on most substrates; the material offers high elongation and tensile strength. Wrightlease 2R has the same features as Wrightlease 2, but is rubber-based and light green.

  • 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.
