Elastomers help aircraft noise insulation structures

At the IKV institute of plastics processing colloquium in Aachen, Germany, in March, IKV researcher Arne Böttcher won the prize for studies in fibre reinforced plastics (FRP). Böttcher has developed acoustically optimised sandwich structures with integrated elastomer layers for large aircraft interior parts. The €1,000 prize, awarded for the third time this year, was initiated and is sponsored by Dr Peter Ehrentraut, honorary member of the AVK federation of reinforced plastics.

3D printing - an excellent complement to machining

Tailored plastic solutions do not need to be expensive, but they do usually need to be enduring and must work smoothly. Here, it's important to understand the pros and cons of the different production methods as well as the usability of the various materials - and to be able to weigh these up against each other. At Automatica 2016, Murtfeldt Kunststoffe will be advising customers and other interested parties about its design and production capacities at Stand 108 in Hall 5, and will be explaining which method is best for which requirements. This all-round offer can cover all requirements if desired - from consulting and the creation of design data to the initial tangible prototype and finally the production of a small series.

Biodegradable composites: a significant advance in medical implant technology

Evonik is conducting cutting-edge research into biodegradable high-strength composites. These materials could potentially replace metal in implants used for the internal fixation of fractured bones. Implants play a key role in supporting bones until they heal. Today’s metallic devices typically remain in the body for the rest of the patient’s life or require additional surgery for removal. By contrast, devices made with Evonik’s new composites will be absorbed by the body gradually once the bone healing process has taken place.

ZeMC2 and Zeon Technologies develop resin that redefines thermoset composites

A new thermoset composite molding compound has been created based on ZeMC 2 resins developed by Zeon Technologies (Salisbury, NC) that incorporate novel materials from Asbury Carbons (Asbury, NJ). Randy Lewis, Director of Engineering for Zeon Technologies, presented his findings at the recent Plastics-In-Motion conference in Charleston, SC. Lewis has been working with thermoset materials for most of his career, and through a partnership with ZeMC 2, he has developed a composite bulk molding compound (BMC) that, he claims, has outstanding performance capabilities. The ability of the new BMC to be used under the most extreme applications is made possible by Asbury’s carbon fiber and graphite material solutions, Lewis explained.
