Renegade Materials recently celebrated General Electric’s first shipment of a GE Passport Engine shipset built with the company’s RM-1100 polyimide high-service temperature composite prepregs.
GE hosted 40 composite materials manufacturing and test technicians from Renegade Materials for a facility tour at the General Electric Aviation Learning Centre. The team enjoyed the History of Engines Exhibit and a presentation that highlighted the use of composite materials in GE’s military and commercial jet engine programmes.
Committed to the development and high-rate production of advanced materials for aerospace composite design, use and affordability initiatives, Renegade Materials has applied RM-1100 polyimide and bismaleimide systems for GE’s stringent specifications.
“The GE Passport Engine sets a new standard for performance for ultra-long range business aircraft,” states Laura Gray, General Manager at Renegade Materials. “Our team is honoured to have been selected to provide materials for this exciting programme, and we congratulate General Electric on their success.”
