Cost-effective aerocomposites: Dry fiber AFP and resin infusion
Aurora Flight Sciences and NONA Composites aim to improve toughness, repeatable aerospace quality and affordability for large-scale NASA structures.
CW Ideas in Action
Ideas are just ideas until someone does the hard work of putting them into action and seeing results. CW's editors, therefore, inaugurate an annual review of Ideas in Action, celebrating a handful of hot concepts that could make those who conceived them "household names."
New low-cost, high-temp resins
MG Resins offer a suite of properties and processing that could potentially revolutionize sectors of the composites industry.
CFRP camera boom enables safe spill inspection
NONA Composites’ 32m REACH structure meets tight remediation schedule at DoE radioactive waste storage site.
Composite tooling without oven or autoclave
No Oven No Autoclave technology has been demonstrated in tooling for NASA, including multiple thermal cycles and use for curing epoxy infused out-of-autoclave parts.
CAMX 2014 exhibit previews, part 2
With CAMX 2014 less than a week away (Oct. 13-16, Orlando, Fla.), CompositesWorld offers a final glimpse of some of the products, technologies and services that you will find in booths in the Exhibit Hall. During the show, we'll keep you informed and up-to-date with the CAMX Show Daily, which will be distributed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the show. Safe travels to Orlando and we look forward to seeing you at the conference and trade show.
No-oven, No-autoclave (NONA)
Room-temperature cure epoxy composites with a 400°F Tg, comparable properties vs. commercial systems without external heat or post-cure, and offering reduced cost and cycle time. Really?
SAMPE 2013 Long Beach new product showcase
The SAMPE 2013 trade show (May 6-9, in Long Beach, Calif.) was the venue for introductions of a large number of new composite materials, technologies and manufacturing processes. Here's the HPC editorial staff's compilation of what was on display.
SMPs: Reshaping old realities
Moving quickly from science fiction to science fact, shape-memory polymer composites show great potential in aerospace applications.
Shape shifters: The molecular basics
The key to SMP shape change is the fact that an SMP can exhibit a radical transformation from a rigid polymer to a malleable elastomer and back again.
