Chem-Trend (Howell, MI, US) is emphasizing the continued evolution of its Chemlease and Zyvax mold release brands with the development of water-based release systems that perform as well or better than customary solvent-based products. Chem-Trend's water-based release systems are said to provide significant environmental and workplace advantages and boost performance for composite manufacturers. Reported advantages include increased throughput by minimizing mold fouling, improved part cosmetics and reduced part rework. Chem-Trend’s water-based alternatives can be applied by wipe or with spray equipment onto ambient or hot tooling.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • 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.
