Zyvax, Inc. has received its certification under ISO 9001:2000 and AS9100:2004 Rev. B for design, manufacture, and distribution of mould release products for aerospace and other industries.
Zyvax is especially proud to have its WaterWorks Aerospace Release System included under the AS9100:2004 Rev. B Certification in compliance with the needs of the aerospace community. In addition to AS9100 Certification, WaterWorks remains the only aerospace release system with California’s AQMD (Air Quality) approval.
WaterWorks is a “green chemistry” system containing no hazardous components. The full, resin-based, semi-permanent release system is suited to the elevated temperature cure demands of today’s advance composites and plastics. WaterWorks offers manufacturers significant benefits and safety advantages not found in older solvent-based release products and continue to meet industry needs with innovative delivery systems. Recently developed products allow WaterWorks to provide solutions for the challenging sizes and shapes of the new generation of composite aircraft and structures. The WaterWorks system continues to draw new specification approvals by leading aerospace companies. Visit www.waterworks4.com for more information on the full WaterWorks product line.
Zyvax industrial product line includes both solvent-based and solvent-free formulas, suitable for many types of moulding processes.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
