Airtech Advanced Materials (Huntington Beach, CA, US) is featuring several products infusion-based molding processes in its booth.

Premium Multi-Valve 408 has a solid body design that combines the male quick-disconnect and thru-bag connector. It eliminates threaded connections and potential leak paths. Stainless steel construction ensures corrosion resistance and long life. High-temperature O-ring and platinum cured silicone gasket give a long service. It is interface-compatible with Parker Snap-Tite 0.25-inch style quick disconnects. The valve mechanism and O-ring seals can be replaced to extend life.

BBH 1080 Hose is a durable high-temperature and high-pressure autoclave hose. The hose construction consists of an inner flexible stainless steel conduit overwrapped with a stainless steel braid. A stainless steel armor jacket covers the hose and protects it from the harsh autoclave and production environment.

Airflow 100 Armor Sleeve is a durable high-temperature and high-pressure autoclave vacuum hose. The hose construction features an outer steel armor jacket protecting the braided steel which holds a PTFE inner tube supported by a flexible steel spring conduit. This design prevents collapse from vacuum or autoclave pressures. It is also available with a 90° fixed end fitting on one or both ends.

Econobreaker 2R is an inexpensive, multi-purpose, rubber adhesive pressure-sensitive tape. This tape is ideal for holding down vacuum bagging materials, thermocouples and other layup items. Econobreaker 2R is suitable for room-temperature applications and heat cures to 177°C.

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 easy-to-use device that can be used 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.


  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.

  • 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.

  • Supersonic flight goes commercial, again

    Boom Technology describes its program to validate a cost-effective faster-than-sound airliner.
