BAE Systems is using large scale 3D printing to produce high temperature mould tooling utilising Airtech Dahltram® I-350CF resin in the production of a manufacturing technology demonstration activity for exploitation in the Combat Air environment.
We are delighted to be joining JEC Group for an exciting all-new digital event series for the composites community at JEC Connect. Join us at our virtual booths on June 1-2, where we will be showcasing new materials and offering video demonstration.
Airtech Advanced Materials Group confirms expansion of LARGE SCALE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING activity, with new European operation in Luxembourg
Airtech Advanced Materials Group announced during Formnext Connect 2020, the installation of its second state-of-the-art machinery for Large Scale 3D Printing technology, operable now in its Airtech Europe facility, Luxembourg.
The Airtech product range provides a one-stop-shop for vacuum bagging materials required in different processes of manufacturing composites parts and tooling, in all composite industries such as marine, wind energy, aerospace, automotive, glass lamination, etc.
Airtech International, Inc is pleased to announce it has been recognised as a winner of the SAMPE 2020 Organizational Excellence Award. The award recognizes organizations from industry, academia, and/or government that exemplify the best of the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) and within the advanced materials and process community as a whole.
During this unprecedented health crisis, Airtech employees are finding solutions to help caregivers and health services by providing them with protective equipment. Using our design and cutting capabilities, we have been able to create a prototype of gowns based on several Airtech films, which were subsequently validated by the hospital community as an urgent solution for a serious shortage on the market.
The Airtech Advanced Materials Group continues to work and manufacture globally to reduce any supply impacts of COVID-19. Stock levels remain high within the group and we are in a good position to continue to work in partnership with our valued customers during these difficult times.
Airtech Advanced Materials Group Invests in a New Technology and a 10’ x 40’ LSAM 3D Printing Machine
Airtech Advanced Materials Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of vacuum bagging and composite tooling materials, has invested in new technology in the form of a Large Scale Additive Manufacturing (LSAM) 3D printing machine with integrated machining capability.
Wrightlease 4 is an extruded fluoropolymer film coated with silicone pressure sensitive adhesive. The orange color is highly visible on most substrates in addition to offering high elongation and tensile strength.
OOA Beta Prepreg is a new benzoxazine formulation that allows autoclave and out of autoclave (OOA) processing. OOA Beta Prepreg offers long term storage at room temperature. OOA Beta Prepreg has low resin shrinkage during cure and has a high glass transition temperature.
Vac Saver HT is a one way valve usable to protect vacuum bagged parts against vacuum loss which are multiple connected to a vacuum source. In case of a vacuum loss in a part which is connected to the same vacuum source, the Vac Saver HT closes automatically and protects this part against vacuum loss.
Corehold P-HA is a core holding film designed to hold honeycomb core and other core materials during machining. It is a polyester film coated on one side with a silicone free synthetic rubber adhesive. The film is supplied with a yellow backing release paper on one side.
Stretch Flow P 2000 is a knitted, polyester breather with excellent stretch properties. The high-stretch characteristics of Stretch Flow P 2000 enable it to conform to many complex contour surfaces, ensuring good application of pressure by vacuum bags.
Vac Valve 429 SS HTR was designed for high temperature cures where standard valves with silicone rubber seals fail. Vac Valve 429 SS HTR is to be used for direct connection to vacuum hoses instead of complex and expensive coupling systems.
Combo-Tech is our expanded product line that bonds various vacuum bagging materials together to form a better overall product and reduce “touch labor”, saving companies hours of labor expense while increasing productivity.
Filmcote® 1524 is an engineered film developed as a replacement for release liquids on the surface of mold tools. Filmcote® 1524 remains on the part surface after demold providing protection from damage or contamination during subsequent process.
Beta TX670 DISCO is a prepreg sold in sheet format. This special format allows for simpler and faster layups. Beta TX670 DISCO Prepreg has a 0°,+/-60° orientation, is quasi-isotropic within each ply, and comes with an engineered cut pattern that improves drapability.
