Advanced Composites Group has launched HTM143, a high temperature moulding and low moisture pick-up cyanate ester resin matrix system suitable for space and satellite applications.

With a 0.55% weight gain on neat resin, ACG say that HTM143 exhibits one of the lowest moisture pick-up rates of all comparable systems currently on the market. With a long out life of 21 days and a high Tg capability of 250°C (482°F), achieved after a suitable post-cure, HTM143 is intended for use in the manufacture of space structures exhibiting high dimensional stability.

HTM143, which is non-ITAR listed, has already been selected for use on several satellite programs.

ACG’s HTM143 is available for use with a wide range of unidirectional, biaxial and woven carbon fibre materials
