Cure testing services available for suppliers, fabricators
Lambient Technologies LLC now offers cure testing services for companies working with thermoset resins or advanced composite materials.
Precision measurement solutions specialist Lambient Technologies LLC (Cambridge, Mass., U.S.) now provides cure testing services for companies working with thermoset resins or advanced composite materials. According to the company, customers can use this data to identify flaws or inconsistencies in raw materials obtained from outside suppliers, such as variations in curing behavior between batches or within a roll of prepreg material. With data provided by Lambient Technologies, companies can work with suppliers to improve the consistency of raw materials.
Whether an organization needs to test incoming resins or prepreg materials that it receives from suppliers or needs to test consistency of outgoing materials that it is supplying to other companies, Lambient Technologies says its testing services provide researchers with critical information about the curing of their materials, illustrating the effect of formulation and different time-temperature schedules on cure and cure time.
In addition, customers can submit material samples before engaging in testing services, incurring no charges if Lambient Technologies determines that the material is one that cannot be measured with its equipment. If customers engage in testing services and then decide to purchase one of Lambient’s DEA instruments, a portion of the testing expenditure will be applied to the cost of an instrument.
In addition to its testing services, Lambient Technologies designs, produces and sells instruments for real-time analysis of the curing of thermosets and advanced composite materials such as those used in aerospace, automotive and wind applications.
