Hexcel Sponsors Carbon 2010
Hexcel is a Gold Sponsor of the Carbon 2010 conference taking place at Clemson University, South Carolina on July 11-16th.
At this year’s conference the theme of the event is “from nano to macro” – addressing the advances in nanocarbons that continue to reveal exciting new applications, while acknowledging the resurgence in interest in bulk carbon materials, driven by increased demand in areas such as energy and transportation.
Hexcel will mount a display at the event focusing on the company’s leadership in carbon fibers for composite materials. There will be a special focus on Hexcel’s HexTow IM10 carbon fiber that meets the industry challenge of achieving over 1,000 ksi tensile strength performance, without compromising outstanding tensile modulus of 44.0 Msi. Called HexTow IM10, this true breakthrough in IM carbon fiber development builds on Hexcel’s 28 years of supplying IM fiber products to the aerospace industry. HexTow IM10 provides the highest commercially available tensile strength and meets the demands for next generation aerospace programs and applications.
Over 1,000 attendees from around the world are expected to attend Carbon 2010 at which 768 papers have been approved for presentation.
