The portfolio of high tenacity carbon fibers will be expanded by the new product Tenax-E HTS45 E23 12K 800tex.
The improved fiber-matrix adhesion is designed to give high and balanced mechanical properties in various resin systems and has significant advantage for structural parts under fatigue load. High spreadability also enables low areal weights to be achieved in textile production and allows a very even, consistent surface finish to the fabric.
Tenax-E HTS45 E23 12K 800tex is produced in Germany and available world-wide. This type is already successfully used in industrial applications and is now also available for aerospace applications. Toho Tenax will present this new filament yarn Tenax HTS45 E23 for the first time at the JEC 2011 in Paris.
In addition, this year marks the 25th anniversary of carbon fibre production of Toho Tenax Europe in Germany. In 1986 Tenax carbon fibre production was started in Germany under the previous owners (Enka, Akzo Nobel), and Toho Tenax will celebrate its success story at JEC 2011 in Paris.
Alvant has been appointed to work on a two-year, £28 million project titled Large Landing Gear of the Future, which aims to deliver a 30% weight reduction and assist the aerospace industry’s drive to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Hexadrone’s 3D printed Tundra prototype, manufactured by CRP Technology via laser sintering (LS) technology using Windform SP and Windform XT 2.0 carbon composite materials, has won the Red Dot Award 2018 in the drone category.
UK company Norco Composites has invested in a larger spray booth and a new cutting and kitting machine to enable the company to increase productivity in line with growing demand from its marine customers.
