Renegade Materials Corp. (Springboro, Ohio, USA) will emphasize polyimides and bismaleimides (BMIs) in its CAMX booth.  Renegade Materials’ out-of-autoclave BMI (RM-3004) and BMI Infusion Resins (RM-3000 and RM-3010) will be featured. These products are currently in qualification at aerospace primes. Renegade also plans to expand its BMI adhesive product line this fall. Renegade’s polyimide prepreg system, MVK-14 Freeform, is now flying on commercial engine hardware and is in evaluation on primary structure for military engines. Also featured will be Renegade's low-dielectric prepreg systems, including cyanate ester (RM-5003) and its new modified epoxy (RM-2014). Renegade reports that RM-2014 offers good dielectric performance and ease of processing at a lower cost than cyanate esters. 

In the CAMX conference, Jim Magato, senior materials engineer at Renegade's sister company Maverick Corp., will present a paper titled, “Process Modeling of PMR-Type, Addition Cure Polyimide Matrix Composites.” Magato will discuss his work on modeling the cure process of addition-cure polyimides and how key parameters in the cure cycle can be modeled to predict degree of imidization and cure. Magato is speaking on Tuesday, Oct. 14, 4:30 p.m.
