3A’s SealX Technologies Reduce Resin Uptake

11 April 2012

3A Composites has launched its new SealX technologies which they say offers a dramatic reduction of resin uptake of the infused core materials.

According to 3A, while this reduction is above 50% for their AIREX T90 and T92 cores, it is expected to be above 80% for their BALTEK SB and SBC balsa cores. Depending on sandwich design, resin uptake can constitute around 15% up to 40% of the infused core materials’ total costs.

3A say this resin saving is not only highly welcomed with regard to costs but also translates into a weight reduction. They introduced the products AIREX T92 SealX and T90 SealX at JEC in Paris, while BALTEK SealX was presented as a technology platform and will be launched later in the year.

“We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback of the hundreds of visitors and the respective customer interest in our SealX products at the JEC show, Paris. The market just waited for this kind of innovation and we are proud to once again significantly raise our products’ customer value”, says Philipp Angst, Director of Product Management at 3A Composites Core Materials.
