Henkel Showcases Aerospace Innovations at SAMPE

Published on 2010-05-26. Author : SpecialChem

Henkel will display its innovative aerospace solutions at the 2010 SAMPE show in Seattle, Wash. These technologies significantly help to increase process efficiency, reduce costs and strengthen structural integrity. Henkel will feature a new resin system that is an alternative to the traditional epoxy-based chemistry for high performance applications; film adhesives that require minimal surface preparation; as well as the latest advances in composite assembly solutions.

"With the evolving requirements of the aerospace industry, Henkel is dedicated to developing products that will increase efficiency and reduce costs for our customers," said Patrice Buisson, vice president, Sales, Henkel. "We are excited to introduce our latest innovative solutions at SAMPE, a key industry event."

In booth 300 at SAMPE, Henkel's display will include many of its aerospace solutions and advanced technologies, including:
  • Henkel Benzoxazine 99110™ Resins - Henkel's Benzoxazine resins offer an alternative to the traditional epoxy chemistry and were a 2010 JEC Innovation Award Finalist. This new liquid resin is fire retardant, and enhances mechanical performance and durability. In addition, Henkel has partnered with Airtech International to offer tooling carbon fiber prepregs for the manufacture of composite tools using Henkel's Benzoxazine resin. The tools, which maintain vacuum integrity and offer good dimensional control, will be on display at the Airtech booth, number 910.
  • Hysol® EA 9896™ Wet Peel Ply - a new film adhesive that increases process efficiency by eliminating the need for sanding or grit blasting of composites. Once removed from the adhesive, the nylon fabric strips easily, leaving minimal residual peel ply fibers, therefore optimizing bond surface and durability.
  • Hysol® EA 9825™ - a low-density, one-component epoxy syntactic for use on honeycomb composite parts requiring high compressive strength at high temperatures up to 350°F (177°C). Hysol® EA 9825™ may also be used for fastener or attachment potting and panel edge reinforcing.
