RST-5 USA (Port St. Lucie, Fla.) is featuring RST5, its "green" cleaner solvent, designed to remove uncured resins, polyurethane adhesive/sealant, silicone caulking and sealant from tools, surfaces and skin at what the company says is less then half the cost of competitive solvents. RST5 is said to be the only product that has been dermatologically tested on humans and proven to be non-allergenic and non-irritant. RST5 costs less then $0.40/lb and does not evaporate. It's provided in concentrate, to be diluted 1:20 with water. It poses no fire/explosion hazard and is nontoxic.

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

  • 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.
