Alcan Composites Introduces Renewed AIREX T90

11 December 2009

Alcan Composites has introduced a renewed version of AIREX T90 – the structural core material purposely designed for applications with high flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) requirements.

The renewed AIREX T90 exhibits improved mechanical properties: damage tolerance has been raised four-fold from 2.5% to 10%, whilst shear strength has been increased by over 30%. Other key features of AIREX T90 include high temperature performance, exceptional fatigue resistance and compatibility with all common resins and recyclability.

Renewed AIREX T90 has already been certified according to today’s relevant FST standards like NF, DIN, FAR. Furthermore, tests have shown that the new material can also comply with CEN TS 45’545 given the appropriate sandwich design.

Alcan Composites’ portfolio of core materials allows customers to optimize every sandwich structure. With the Hybrid Core Concept, customers can combine different materials according to their optimisation criteria (weight, cost, sustainability) to get a highly customized sandwich solution.
