HOS-Technik GmbH (St. Stefan, Austria) is featuring its high-temperature resins based on bismaleimide (HOMIDES), polybenzimidazole (HOZOLE), maleimide monomers, reactive diluents and microbeads (HOSBeads). HOZOLE and HOMIDE are used mainly for applications where high-temperature resistance is an important criterion. The monomer HOMIDES can be used as cross-linking agents for rubber, in formulations for adhesives, as basic elements for the production of bismaleimide resins and for the preparation of formulations for resin transfer molding (RTM) and hot-melt processing. In combination with maleimide monomers, the reactive diluents can be used for the manufacture of composites and laminates. The high-temperature resins HOMIDE 250, 400, 405 and 802 are thermosetting reactive prepolymers. The main fields of application include the production of laminates, composites and molded parts. Long-term temperature resistance after cure is 260-280°C (500-536°F). HOZOLE is a powdery high-performance polymer manufactured using a polybenzimidazole base. Products made from HOZOLE are non-flammable and show excellent high-temperature stability up to 540°C/1004°F). HOZOLE is used to make fibres, component parts and films. HOSBeads are spherical beads made of highly crosslinked methyl methacrylate that can be used in solvent-based and waterborne paints and coatings. To improve the structure, opacity and matting of products, HOSBeads can be blended with other fillers or matting agents.

    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.

  • 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.
