How Can Composite Materials Help the Aerospace Maintenance Repair Overhaul Sector Save Money?

The rapid adoption of composites in the aerospace industry have helped the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) sector save time and money on repairs. Equipment composed of carbon fiber and epoxy has several benefits to MRO, most notably in lowering costs. Carbon fiber in particular is projected to reach $6.36 billion in value by 2025, Read More…

Composites Make Aerospace Innovation Possible, Creating Opportunities in Maintenace Repair Overhaul (MRO) Sector

Composites have allowed the aerospace industry to innovate significantly, leading to aircrafts that can fly farther, faster and with more fuel efficiency than ever before. Composites are making up a greater percentage of total aircraft material — up to 50 percent in some cases — illustrating how valuable they have become to commercial aviation, defense Read More…

A Brief Look Inside the Prepreg Manufacturing Process

Pre-impregnated materials (prepregs) are utilized in high-performance applications when weight and mechanical properties are top priority. Manufacturers from the aerospace, transportation, and sustainable energy industries benefit from pre-impregnated material properties. Advanced fibers such as carbon fiber and aramid with high-quality epoxy resins are the most common materials used in prepreg structures. By combining these two Read More…
