TRB Lightweight Structures

Huntingdon

When TRB was started in 1952, its founder George Newell already had more than a decade of experience working with innovative materials to build aeroplanes. He helped pioneer the use of wooden sandwich construction with a balsa core which was used to build several well-known aeroplanes. During this time he experimented with flax-based prepreg, something in use again today, and he co-developed an adhesive called Redux®.

Redux® fundamentally changed the aerospace industry, allowing wing and fuselage panels to be stronger and lighter than a riveted structure. It also made possible early composite structures, joining aluminium to wood.

A half-century later we still use Redux®, and we are still experimenting. Our goal remains to decrease the weight and improve the performance of all kinds of structures.
