3A Composites has won qualification from Airbus for its AIREX R82.80 rigid high performance core, which is well-suited for aerospace sandwich applications due to outstanding fire resistance, exceeding the most stringent flammability, smoke density, heat release, and toxic gas emission requirements such as FAR 25’853.

According to 3A, AIREX R82.80 follows lower density R82.60 in obtaining Airbus qualification. “We are excited to continue expanding our relationship with Airbus and delivering solutions to the aerospace industry,” said Eric Gauthier, President of Global Key Accounts at 3A Composites Core Materials.

It claims that AIREX R82 has proven to exhibit outstanding strength and stiffness to weight ratios, high impact resistance, excellent dielectric properties, and very low moisture absorption. All of this is said to make AIREX R82 an exceptional thermoformable core material for use in structural applications that demand lightest weight, highest fire resistance, radar transparency or operation in extremely hot or cold environments.
