Solvay introduces CYCOM® EP2750, a market first technology which enables the high rate, cost effective manufacture of aerospace structural parts. This technology combines advanced continuous fiber prepreg materials with an in-depth understanding of the key material and process characteristics required to achieve aerospace quality and performance using compression molding processing technology.
This new prepreg, applicable to both primary and secondary structures, is compatible with multiple reinforcements. The toughened CYCOM® EP2750 prepreg offers high notched compression properties and enables the manufacture of complex geometries with a 30 minute takt time. This new material has proven capable of producing high quality small to medium size parts such as access panels, rib-shapes and C-frames. Automated processing of CYCOM® EP2750 further contributes to the technology's suitability for high rate commercial aircraft programs as well as military and air mobility platforms.
Representative parts will be on display on Solvay’s stand M41 at JEC World, Paris, March 3-5 2020. And this technology is one of three finalists in the Aerospace category of JEC World Innovation Awards.
