Hexcel has been presented with an award for “Best Research & Technology Partner” by Aerolia (Stelia Aerospace), acknowledging the strong collaboration between the companies in demonstrating the potential of HiTape technology for next generation aircraft primary structures.

The award was presented to Hexcel’s Thierry Merlot, VP and General Manager, by Alain Tropis,

COO Development at Aerolia, and Raphaël Duflos, Chief Procurement Officer at Aerolia.

Hexcel explains that it worked with Aerolia to design and manufacture an aircraft fuselage panel demonstrator with a self-stiffened skin made by vacuum infusion using Hexcel’s innovative HiTape reinforcements and HexFlow RTM6 resin. Aerolia took responsibility for the part design and quality control testing. Hexcel performed the one-shot infusion of the out of autoclave part at its Application Lab in Les Avenières.

“I would like to thank Aerolia for this recognition”, said Thierry Merlot, Hexcel’s VP and General

Manager. “This Best R&T Award is the result of close cooperation between the technical teams

and also an important milestone for this particular project, demonstrating a cost-effective solution

to design and manufacture composite fuselage structures based on Hexcel’s HiTape and

Infusion technology. Aerolia and Hexcel will continue to work closely together to further mature

this new technology in order to be ready for future introduction on a new aircraft.” commented
