New AIREX T92 SealX Wins 2nd Place in the AVK Innovation Award 2012

16 October 2012

3A Composites and Airex were awarded 2nd place in the 2012 AVK Innovation Award for the new AIREX T92 SealX technology.

According to Airex, this new surface sealing technology reduces the AIREX PET core materials’ resin uptake by over 50%. Customers using AIREX T92 or T90 can therefore save approximately 0.6 kg of infused resin per square meter resulting both in a lighter and cheaper product.

“We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious prize”, says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials. “It is proof of our strong and successful focus on innovation and customer benefit, and it rewards the substantial investments in our R&D to push the technological limits yet further for better solutions.”

SealX can be ordered both for AIREX T90 and T92 and is suitable for all resin transfer processes (e.g. infusion). Extensive testing has proven that all properties including fatigue and skin adhesion are unchanged by this novel surface sealing. In the meantime, SealX has already been successfully applied in wind rotor blades, sailing yachts and other high performance applications. Customers are delighted to receive a product that has better performance and reduces part cost at the same time.
