Umeco exhibits high performance prepregs and adhesives at Farnborough 2012

Umeco Structural materials, a leading provider of high performance prepregs and adhesives to the aerospace, space and military industries, will be exhibiting examples of Airbus-qualified prepregs on stand H1/B14 at the Farnborough show, which takes place between 9 and 13 July 2012.

Umeco leads the way in Out-of-Autoclave (OoA) prepreg processing technology for primary and secondary aircraft structures, and has its MTM®44-1, MTM®45-1, MTM®46 epoxy prepregs in use at major airframers, including Airbus.

Visitors to the Umeco stand will see an aerospace sandwich panel manufactured using a combination of the company's MTM®44-1 OoA carbon fabric prepreg and MTF246 sandable surface improvement film. This combination enables the customer to produce paint-ready parts with minimal reworking and curing costs.

Also on display will be an integrally-stiffened monolithic wing skin demonstrator section manufactured using Umeco's OoA MTM®44-1 carbon unidirectional prepreg. This material was chosen for its high toughness, low density and ability to produce low void content parts using vacuum bag moulding.

Umeco's activities are global and focused on delivering advanced composites innovation and a range of services, from structural and process materials to tooling and distribution solutions to its customers.

Xavier Gambert, Umeco Aerospace Market Sector Manager, said: "We have a very wide range of prepregs qualified at major OEMs, and not only for civil aircraft structures. For example, in space applications, we have low out-gassing cyanate esters and epoxies qualified at ESA. For aircraft interiors, we supply phenolics and epoxy prepregs."
