Hall 5A, Stand N37

Building on our drive for innovation, we are looking forward to discussing our new prepreg materials with visitors, in particular our newly launched epoxy tooling systems, RP801 and RP802. Developed to offer the choice of system that best suits customer requirements, RP801 offers a high quality, industry-standard tooling system, with a cure cycle of 8hrs at 60°C and a tack life of 5 days (at 20°C). RP802 Overnight Cure provides double the tack life (10 days at 20°C) with a 16hrs cure at 60°C or 8hrs at 70°C. Both systems have a Tg of 190°C after post cure (DSC). Current feedback received on RP802 confirms good handling characteristics, excellent surface finish and significant advantages due to the extended tack life – enabling tools to be made quicker, more efficiently and making it easier for constructors to manage the build.

Other systems being introduced include our new highly toughened epoxy prepreg system, RP549 – which is currently in the final phase of testing – and comform®, our new binder-free formable epoxy prepreg veil. An exciting development, comform® is able to drape over complex surfaces as the fibres are free to move and drape in a tacky form; increasing the scope of veils for use in composite moulding applications such as surfacing plies, EMI and RF shielding, heating elements for moulds and more.

We will also be showcasing our new highly durable, Qiicote semi-permanent mould release agent R380 alongside our wide range of composite materials: prepregs, high performance reinforcements, epoxy resin systems, Qiicote mould release, thermoplastic composite technologies, Safran Structil Aerospace Adhesives, consumables and high quality Robuso shears for technical textiles.
