Richmond Aerovac has introduced a new Non-Bondable PVF replacement material which can be used in a variety of applications where PVF was traditionally specified.
According to Richmond Aerovac, the new material, P720X, can be used in lieu of PVF as a contact material for fibre placement, automatic tape placement and drape forming applications. The material is approved through major aerospace process specifications for use in contact with traditional aerospace tape or fibre placement applications where the preform is built up on a polymer contact sheet and subsequently drape formed or cut to net shape prior to cure.
The P720X is designed as a carrier film and barrier layer to protect the preform during processing and is designed to be discarded prior to final component cure. The 0.002 (50 micron) thickness matte white material is available in a range of roll sizes and can also be slit and rewound to suit individual customer project requirements.
