3A Composites were awarded the CCE JEC 2012 Innovation Award for the new AIREX T92 SealX technology.
According to 3A, this new surface sealing technology reduces the AIREX PET core materials’ resin uptake by over 50%. Customers using AIREX T92 or T90 can therefore save approximately 0.6 kg of infused resin per square meter resulting both in a lighter and cheaper product. The award Innovation Award Programme is given by the China Composites Industry Association and JEC. The award jury is composed of 8 experts from China and overseas, mainly from FRP institutes and associations.
“With this award and the 2nd place in AVK Innovation Award we are happy to gain international expert recognition for AIREX T92 SealX ”, says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials. “It is a great motivation to keep on focusing on research and development with our first priority: offering our customers real and valuable solutions.”
SealX can be ordered both for AIREX T90 and T92 and is suitable for all resin transfer processes (e.g. infusion). 3A says extensive testing has proven that all properties including fatigue and skin adhesion are unchanged by this novel surface sealing. In the meantime, SealX has already been successfully applied in wind rotor blades, sailing yachts and other high performance applications. Customers are delighted to receive a product that has better performance and reduces part cost at the same time.
