Airtech Shows Innovative Products and Services at Composites Europe 2012

14 August 2012

Airtech continues to develop innovative products and services and will present them during Composites Europe 2012, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Airtech has recently launched its latest product development in its sealant tape range. It explains the Airseal sealant tape series is available in new versions:

  • Airseal 2 ST is the cost effective sealant tape with strong tackiness which provides an immediate and excellent adhesion to most surfaces for vacuum bag applications up to 150 °C.
  • Airseal 2 HT Twin is the ideal sealant tape for vacuum bagging applications requiring double bagging. The simultaneous application of the two stripes of sealant tapes saves time, effort and increase reliability of the process.

Airtech will also have its Dahlpac MC79 on show which it explains is an easy to use strip material that allows vacuum to be applied over the surface of a composite laminate with no resin bleed out and little part mark-off. Dahlpac MC79 is constructed with Dahltexx SP-2 fabric which breaths efficiently and can control resin flow. Wrapped inside the Dahltexx SP-2 is a breather mesh which Airtech says provides an efficient air path along the length of the Dahlpac allowing trapped and residual air to be removed from a laminate before and during infusion.

Airtech has continued to develop its product range of films with the new Securlon V-45 which it explains is an economical vacuum bagging film suitable for phenolic resins and used for commercial autoclave processing with a maximum use temperature of 171°C. It says it is designed for commercial applications that utilize higher temperature and higher pressure cure cycles and is ideally suited for high performance automotive applications where autoclave processing is required and transportation interiors that commonly use phenolic pre-pregs.

Airtech will be available at Hall 8b, Booth D32 during the Composites Europe Show.
