Manufacture of future composite aerostructures demands more efficient and robust fabrication and assembly processes. This includes integration of next-generation lightning strike protection systems and reduced use of mechanical fasteners. In this webinar, Composites One, along with its partner 3M, will evaluate solutions for the manufacture, bonding, and protection of composite parts. This includes integrated composite fabrication, bonding and protection options with matrix resins, co-cure structural adhesive films, composite laminate edge sealers, and lightweight structural surfacing films with or without conductive mesh for lightning strike protection. The presentation will review paste adhesives, core splice adhesives, and more, all formulated for robust shop handling and efficient application.

Who can attend
Dial-in available? (listen only)
Structural adhesive films: toughen and bond composite parts with a selection of 3M structural adhesive films, available in a range of weights, carriers, and cure temperatures
Core splice adhesives: low-density adhesives with expansion rates up to 250% and variable cure temperatures for streamlines honeycomb structure joining and gap filling
Surfacing and lightning strike protection films: epoxy-based structural adhesive films cure into tough, smooth composite surfaces and provide lightning strike protection when a conductive mesh is embedded
Corrosion-inhibiting bond primers: solvent- and water-based, chromated and non-chromated heat-cure primers inhibit corrosion on prepared metal parts and maximize adhesive wet out
