Hexcel Composites Ltd • Duxford, Cambridge CB22 4QD, United Kingdom • Telephone +44 (0)1223 833141

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart this year, September 27-29, Hexcel’s promotion will be organized into different zones highlighting the wide range of Hexcel’s composite solutions. In each zone Hexcel will showcase the latest technologies that are providing innovative solutions to a wide range of challenges faced by customers.

Hexcel will display the BMW M3 roof – manufactured by BMW Landshut, Germany- using Hexcel’s PrimeTex™ fabrics, a range of carbon fabrics which have been processed for a smooth weave with a high degree of closure that gives outstanding visual quality. In the patented PrimeTex™ process the fiber tows are spread in both the warp and weft direction providing a more uniform weave and a thinner, more closely woven fabric that leads to better mechanical properties and less porosity in a laminate. The roof also uses NC2® technology : Multiaxial Reinforcements, known as Non-Crimp Fabrics (NCF), layers of unidirectional fibers (usually glass or carbon) that are assembled and stitched together. They provide strength and stiffness in multiple directions depending on the controlled orientation of the fibers. The weight distribution in the fabric is optimized and it is possible to mix fiber types.

The Non-crimp concept allows:

Continuing on the Automotive theme, a part made with our new prepreg resin system HexPly® M77, will be on show. The part has been cured in just 3 minutes at 140°C by compression molding with UD and HexPly® M77.

This is a new prepreg resin system from Hexcel that cures in less than 5 minutes, providing a very fast and efficient composite manufacturing process. Curing in only 2 minutes at 300°F/150°C, HexPly® M77 brings significant advantages especially as this reactive system also has a long shelf life of 6 weeks at 23°C. Other features such as a Tg of 120°C/250°F and good adhesive properties (for example when bonding to aluminum) make HexPly® M77 highly suitable for large volume production, particularly in the automotive industry and for sports equipment manufacture.

At Composites Europe Hexcel will also display a number of 3D complex parts from aerospace and industrial markets made with HexMC® products. HexMC® is Hexcel’s patented carbon fiber/epoxy compression molding material and technology that enables structural complex-shaped parts to be molded cost-effectively. Since HexMC® was launched hundreds of HexMC® parts have been qualified for use on commercial aircraft, bringing weight-saving and performance advantages. For industrial markets this product is also well dedicated for complex parts in automotive, sports and leisure.

Hexcel will also have on show some HexPly® M49 epoxy prepreg demonstrator parts. The matrix is easy to process using a wide variety of production techniques and equipment. HexPly® M49 is especially suitable for providing mechanical performance and an attractive finish for automotive and general industrial applications.

Hexcel is co-exhibiting at Composites Europe with one of their Official Distributors, Lange and Ritter. Lange and Ritter are German distributors of Hexcel’s honeycombs, reinforcements, prepregs, tooling materials and HexMC®. Other Hexcel official distributors, Wela and Esterhammer, will also be at the event promoting Hexcel’s products.
