Principal Investigator: Brian Hayes, Technical Director
Award Amount: $116,068.00
Abstract:
The Army desires to have a high temperature matrix for use in filament winding composites that can be easily processed at room temperature and has a minimum glass transition temperature of 260C (500F)when cured. This objective will be accomplished by developing epoxy curing agent technology based on… More

Innovative Resin for Non-Autoclave Resin Film Infusion Composites Repair

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Brian S. Hayes, Technical Director
Award Amount: $685,643.00
Abstract:
Composite parts on aircraft can be field repaired if the damage is small, using only vacuum and heat blankets or portable ovens. As alternative to using wet laminating resins and prepreg systems for repair, resin film infusion (RFI) is cost effective and can alleviate some problems with current… More
