Hysol EA 9895 composite bonding film has received qualifications for Airbus and Goodrich, and is in qualification at Boeing.
Hysol EA 9895 WPP (Wet Peel Ply) was developed to increase composite substrate bond durability and eliminate contamination of composite surfaces from dry peel ply fragments. Hysol EA 9895 is a pre-impregnated polyester peel ply that cures at 350˚ F. Hysol EA 9895 is designed to fracture cleanly leaving a clean strong bonding surface.
