New industrial structural composites, adhesives and tooling materials were on show from Huntsman Advanced Materials at Composites Europe 2006.
A number of new adhesives specially developed for the aerospace industry were being shown including a unique Araldite epoxy based aerofoil-fill syntactic paste. Developed by the Araldite team in conjunction with Rolls Royce and the University of Sheffield, Araldite 1641A/B is a very low density two-component syntactic paste which exhibits exceptional noise and vibration damping characteristics. It can be used as a replacement for traditional metal reinforcements in aerospace engine components such as outer guide vanes (OGV).
Two multi-functional epoxy resins suitable for a range of processing systems including Resin Transfer Moulding, Resin Film Infusion, Pre-pregs and Filament Winding, were also highlighted. Araldite MY0600 is a tri-functional epoxy resin unique in its ability to provide structural matrices with higher modulus and greater toughness, MY 0600 is particularly suitable for aerospace applications. XB 9721 is a multi-functional epoxy resin, suitable for high temperature industrial applications.
