It minimizes waste while maximizing the impregnation of reinforcement strands. TSE's patented technology ensures better laminate quality through consistent impregnation. The roving tension and the ratio of reinforcement to resin (LOI) can be automatically and consistently controlled. This near dripless resin applicator achieves a 70 to 80% glass-to-resin ratio.<br /></p></div><p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/high-speed-resin-applicator-filament-winding" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Innovations Filament Winding Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:20:53 +0000 editor 31685 at http://www.jeccomposites.com A reformable epoxy adhesive film http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/reformable-epoxy-adhesive-film <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>L&amp;L Products, a global applied engineering &amp; materials science company, launches a reformable epoxy adhesive film which combines the adhesion and mechanical properties of an epoxy with the processing ease of a thermoplastic.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-news-square-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/news/composites-news/reformable-epoxy-adhesive-film" class="imagecache imagecache-news-square-image-view-list imagecache-linked imagecache-news-square-image-view-list_linked"><img src="http://www.jeccomposites.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/news-square-image-view-list/content/images/square_image/26898-ll-products-l-f6101-300x2721.jpg" alt="A reformable epoxy adhesive film" title="A reformable epoxy adhesive film" class="imagecache imagecache-news-square-image-view-list" width="74" height="67" /></a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-field-body"><p>The new film aims to facilitate manufacture of composite parts, panels and laminates.<br /><br />With a tensile elongation of 40%, the reformable epoxy adhesive film is a tough product and has good strength and adhesion in comparison with traditional thermoplastic adhesive systems.<br /><br />The L-F610 has the ability to adhere to different substrates such as metals, epoxy composites, plastics and wood, and it can also be used for a range of dissimilar substrate bonding applications.<br /></p></div><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-news-company"> <div class="field-label">Company:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/content/ll-products">L&amp;L PRODUCTS</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/reformable-epoxy-adhesive-film" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Innovations Thermosetting Resins Ancillary Products Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:53:42 +0000 editor 31684 at http://www.jeccomposites.com Nordam announces agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/nordam-announces-agreement-pratt-whitney-canada <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The company announced a contract, to design, engineer, develop and manufacture the inlet, nacelle and thrust reverser – and provide propulsion system build‐up – for Pratt &amp; Whitney Canada’s new PurePower PW814GA and PW815GA engines to be used on the Gulfstream G500 &amp; G600 aircraft.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-field-body"><p>These will be the latest generation aircraft from Gulfstream, a world‐renowned manufacturer of premium business jets since 1958.<br /></p></div><p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/nordam-announces-agreement-pratt-whitney-canada" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Business Applications Aeronautics & Aerospace Fiber Placement Other Processing Method Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:46:53 +0000 editor 31683 at http://www.jeccomposites.com Live-Webinar on DSC Analysis of Polymers – Basics & Applications http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/live-webinar-dsc-analysis-polymers-basics-applications <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Sponsored news -</em> A wide selection of Netzsch webinars held by experts in the field of material characterisation have been newly scheduled.
