Trans-Textil VAP Membranes Qualified for Aviation Applications

29 November 2011

Trans-Textil, EADS-licensed manufacturer of central components for the patented VAP method, has qualified its C2003 VAP membrane system for aviation applications together with its partners Airbus Deutschland and Premium Aerotec.

According to Trans-Textil, this places a new high-temperature-resistant and practically transparent material on the market for membrane-assisted vacuum infusion in the aerospace sector. They explain the C2003 membrane system, a complete new development, acts as a reliable resin barrier for vacuum infusion processes and ensures dependable air and gas evacuation over the entire component surface. Specifically developed for use with certain resin systems at defined temperatures (up to 190°), they say it is already proving of value in the fabrication of aviation components.
