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.




  • The matrix

    The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here’s a guide to selection.

  • HP-RTM on the rise

    Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

  • Composites: Materials and processes

    High strength at low weight remain the winning combination that propels composite materials into new arenas, but other properties are equally important. This article outlines the case for composites and introduces SourceBook's overview of the materials and processes used to make them.
