Matrix resin systems could cut manufacturing costs

The Advanced Composites Group, UK, is researching aerospace matrix resin systems that it claims could significantly cut the commercial costs of manufacturing aircraft structures within three years.

The company is also designing and manufacturing new composite tooling that could be used in the production of aerospace fuselages and wings.

Engineers say the combined results of this research should reduce the cost of manufacturing and play a significant part in developing a new generation of low-cost lightweight aerospace structures.

Amongst the company’s latest aerospace matrix resin systems are MTM 44-1, a tough structural matrix system designed for out-of-autoclave processing, and MVR444, a liquid resin system for VARTM and RIFT. Both materials were developed in close collaboration with maj....
