People in Composites: November 2020
CW’s November monthly people roundup include new appointees for Lilium, ACMA, Beckers Group, AZL, Hexion and Eckhart.
Hexion sells resin businesses for $425 million
The definitive agreement to sell its Phenolic Specialty Resins, Hexamine and European-based Forest Products Resins will enable a stronger business moving forward.
Composites suppliers, fabricators respond to coronavirus
Companies across the composites industry supply chain share how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting their businesses, and how they are available to help.
Composite output shaft ready for automotive proving ground
Unlike automotive driveshafts, automotive output shafts cannot leverage shaft length as a factor when making the case for composites. Instead, other beneficial features have made a composite output shaft able to compete with metal shafts, especially in electric vehicles.
Compression RTM for production of future aerostructures
Automated preforming and 5-min resin infiltration show a way forward for lower-cost CFRP primary structures.
Hexion completes Shanghai-based Application Development Center
New Application Development Center will support new product development and customer collaboration to accelerate growth in waterborne coatings and composite applications.
Foam materials for injection or compression molding
Hexion Inc.’s Bakelite FoamSet materials offer flame retardance for lightweight construction applications.
2-part epoxy for increased composite aerostructures production via RTM
Hexion meets demand for accurate mixing with in-line analytic control while improving processing window, fiber volume content and manufacturing efficiency.
Can the automotive industry turn to face the change?
SPE ACCE speakers speculate about how changing consumer behaviors might shape the automotive industry.
Hexion self-extinguishing epoxy resin
Hexion has introduced Epon FlameX, a halogen-free, non-particulate, non-additive chemistry for epoxies that provides strong fire/smoke/toxicity (FST) performance in aerospace applications.
Hexion receives approval for DIP financing
The company expects to emerge from Chapter 11 in summer of 2019.
Architectural cladding composite unveiled
Arcitell, a manufacturer of residential siding products, has unveiled a lightweight fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) panel that replicates traditional brick, stone or wood siding.
Boston SAMPE to highlight advanced composite driver-side commercial passenger car door project
The featured project is an example of an automated low-cycle time solution that enables composites to become a viable alternative to metals in high rate automotive manufacturing.
Hexion files for bankruptcy
The global thermoset resin leader filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization for its U.S. operations on April 1 and has been approved for debtor-in-possession financing.
Proving viability of dry fabrics, infusion for large aerostructures
Danobat’s ADMP is used to produce a wing demonstrator with non-crimp fabrics.

Hexion featured several new products at JEC World 2019 designed to meet stringent electric vehicle application requirements.
Hexion introduces two-component epoxy solution for aerospace composites production
The solution is based on Hexion’s EPIKOTE system and uses a metering and mixing agent from Hübers.
Thermoplastic overmolded thermosets, 2-minute cycle, one cell
Adhesive-free, functionalized hybrid composites enabled by industry-first, integrated molding cell.
JEC World 2019 Preview
The JEC World trade show and conference, the largest composites event in the world, will be held at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, March 12-14, 2019.
A highly-manufacturable, high-performance hang glider
A small Swiss company has developed a fast and easily deployed manufacturing method for producing a competition-worthy rigid hang glider.
Overcoming barriers to adoption of structural autocomposites
Although much attention has been focused on material costs and development of high-rate, automated manufacturing processes for structural autocomposites, production of viable products depends on the ability to design and simulate the structures for these exciting new FRP applications.
