Henkel Showcases Aerospace Innovations at SAMPE

31 May 2010

Henkel displayed a number of its innovative aerospace solutions at the 2010 SAMPE show in Seattle.

The company featrured a new resin system that is an alternative to the traditional epoxy-based chemistry for high performance applications; film adhesives that require minimal surface preparation; as well as the latest advances in composite assembly solutions.

""With the evolving requirements of the aerospace industry, Henkel is dedicated to developing products that will increase efficiency and reduce costs for our customers,"" said Patrice Buisson, vice president, Sales, Henkel. ""We are excited to introduce our latest innovative solutions at SAMPE, a key industry event.""

Henkel's display contained many of its aerospace solutions and advanced technologies, including:

•Henkel Benzoxazine 99110 Resins -- Henkel's Benzoxazine resins offer an alternative to the traditional epoxy chemistry and were a 2010 JEC Innovation Award Finalist. This new liquid resin is fire retardant, and enhances mechanical performance and durability. In addition, Henkel has partnered with Airtech International to offer tooling carbon fibre prepregs for the manufacture of composite tools using Henkel's Benzoxazine resin.
•Hysol EA 9896 Wet Peel Ply -- a new film adhesive that Henkel say increases process efficiency by eliminating the need for sanding or grit blasting of composites. Once removed from the adhesive, the nylon fabric strips easily, leaving minimal residual peel ply fibers, therefore optimizing bond surface and durability.
•Hysol EA 9825 -- a low-density, one-component epoxy syntactic for use on honeycomb composite parts requiring high compressive strength at high temperatures up to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Hysol EA 9825 may also be used for fastener or attachment potting and panel edge reinforcing.
