Aerospace: thermosets and thermoplastics compete

Enter the next step… Composites, based mostly on thermoset resins, are now in widespread use in civil or military aircraft. Due to the production volumes expected for the successors of the A320neo and the B737max, however, Airbus, Boeing and others are now taking a close look at thermoplastics. Just the same, we haven’t heard the last of thermosets, which are providing new solutions.
