Hexcel to discuss lightweight solutions in Turkey

Hexcel Sales Engineer, Frederic Pomies. © Hexcel Corporation Hexcel Sales Engineer, Frederic Pomies, will present the company’s latest innovations for industrial applications, with special focus on wind energy, automotive, marine, recreation and industrial specialty markets, at the Turkish Composite Summit taking place in Istanbul this week.

Hexcel’s extensive range of composite materials will be featured, from carbon fibre and reinforcements through to prepreg, honeycomb and adhesives. Special mention will be made of HexPly M79, Hexcel’s low temperature cure prepreg with low exothermic properties that is particularly suitable for thick composite sections found in marine and wind energy applications.

Where previous systems for thick laminates required a 10-hour cure at 80°C, HexPly M79 cures in 8-10 hours at 70°C or just 4-6 hours at 80°C and the system has a long 6-week outlife at room temperature. When HexPly M79 carbon fibre UD prepreg is used in conjunction with Hexcel’s patented grid technology a void content in the cured laminate of less than 1% is achievable, regardless of the part thickness.

In addition to the conference presentation, Hexcel’s products will be promoted on the ASES Aviation stand. ASES is Hexcel’s official distributor in Turkey with decades of experience supplying aerospace customers. It is now looking to promote the weight-saving and high-performance benefits of Hexcel materials for other markets where those factors are key requirements.

Hexcel Corporation is a leading advanced composites company. It develops, manufactures and markets lightweight, high-performance structural materials including carbon fibres, specialty reinforcements, prepregs and other fibre-reinforced matrix materials, honeycomb, adhesives, engineered core and composite structures for use in commercial aerospace, space and defence and industrial applications.
