Hexcel and Composites Distribution are partnering to provide solutions for MRO that allow aircraft repairs to be carried out quickly and conveniently.

According to Composites Distribution, as more and more composite-intensive aircraft enter service around the World there is an increasing requirement for airlines to carry out composite repair operations. Repairing aircraft quickly to minimise downtime means that small quantities of materials have to be readily available at all times.

Composites Distribution is launching the new CAB concept (Composite AeroBox) from Sunaero, Hall 2B, Stand B85 at the Paris Airshow, 15-21 June, 2015 in Paris, France. It explains that this efficient tool kit has different compartments for the storage of frozen prepregs, ancillary materials that are kept at ambient temperature and a hotbonder control panel, all contained within an easy to transport box that holds everything that is required for a quick repair of a composite part out in the field.

Hexcel’s range of products developed for composite repair includes HexPly M20 prepreg and HexForce carbon fabrics. HexPly M20 prepreg provides high temperature performance from a low energy cure cycle at 120-130°C (250-265°F) and can be processed out in the field using a vacuum bag and a heater blanket or hot bonder – or in an autoclave. These materials are approved by the Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC) that sets global aerospace standards for composite repair operations.
