SikaAxson US (Madison Heights, Michigan) is introducing ProInfusion epoxy infusion system, which features a choice of four hardeners: three for room temperature and one for high-temperature applications. It enables the mixing and matching of the hardeners to tailor reactivity and Tg to the needs of the application. Uniform mixing ratio (all 3:1, by volume) reportedly allows easy blending of hardeners for a pot life tailored to the part being produced and extends the system's usable temperature range. Designed for production of composite structures by infusion methods, ProInfusion offers good temperature cure development, high clarity, low viscosity/exotherm and shrinkage, and excellent mechanical properties. ProInfusion is also suitable for vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) projects and various marine applications.

  • 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.
