L&L Products (Romeo, MI, US) will feature a range of room temperature-curing two-component fire, smoke, toxicity (FST) compliant adhesives for simple assembly of composite parts. They're supplied in a two-component cartridge, as well as in pails or drums. One of the components contains an epoxy-based adhesive, while the other contains an amine-based curing agent. Once the two are mixed, the adhesive adheres to the surrounding substrates and hardens. L&L says its adhesives hold a high-strength bond and are designed to meet the stringent requirements of the aerospace industry. The company notes that a 12-second vertical burn is the minimum specification to meet FAR 25; L&L’s adhesives exceed the requirement by passing the most stringent of the tests at 60 seconds.  All of L&L’s two-component adhesives have a 1:1 or 2:1 mix ratio, enabling easy working conditions using standard applicator gun sizes. Typical gel times are 5-90 minutes, depending on the material used. All of L&L’s two-component FST adhesives are developed with REACH compliance. Typical application include bonding inserts to honeycomb panels, panel-to-panel bonding (ability to bond multi-material substrates), composite potting and fillet seals.

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

  • 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. 

  • Fiber reinforcement forms

    Fibers used to reinforce composites are supplied directly by fiber manufacturers and indirectly by converters in a number of different forms, which vary depending on the application. Here's a guide to what's available.
