Attend Solvay’s Composites World Webinar: Automotive Processes for High-Rate Aerospace Composites Manufacturing

March 30 2020

Alongside confronting near term challenges, the aerospace industry will remain focused on addressing long-term opportunities such as ensuring efficient aircraft production. With that in mind, a new material developed by Solvay enables aerospace manufacturers to fabricate composite parts for aircraft much faster & cheaper than previously possible. But things are moving slowly. Technical considerations that boil down to time and money are (as always) to blame here. Therefore, there is no other way to accelerate the path towards lighter, less polluting aircraft than to come up with new generations of composites that are fast and easy to work with.

That’s exactly what Solvay and Boeing had in mind as they put their heads together to create a new generation of composites, CYCOM EP2750, officially launched commercially earlier this year. The special thing about it is the curing time it allows. Making a part with carbon fiber pre-impregnated with resin traditionally takes hours because of the required autoclave curing time. CYCOM EP2750 reduces this time so significantly that manufacturing rates can be multiplied by a factor of 10 to 20.

CYCOM EP2750 targets all other areas of the aerospace industry requiring high-rate manufacturing of high numbers of parts, namely military aircraft, autonomous air vehicles such as drones – a rapidly expanding market – as well as the emerging field of urban air-taxis; for these vertical lift vehicles, high performance lightweight composites are definitely of interest.
