Trends in composite materials to maintain European leadership in aeronautics

15 June 2022, 8H30 – 17H00
ARIMA Hotel – San Sebastian, Spain

The AIRPOXY project proposes a new generation of smart 3R (re processable, reparable, recyclable) epoxy composites to enable:

  • High production rates due to new innovative 3R-Thermoforming processes
  • More robust and cheaper chemical 3R-Bonding technology
  • Easy, cost-efficient 3R-Repair method for rejected or damaged parts
  • Recycling of manufacturing or end-of-life waste to achieve true sustainability

To share results and exchange with stakeholders, the AIRPOXY project organises a public workshop where the project partners and external experts will give 11 presentations to showcase new materials, manufacturing technologies, and sustainable solutions to enable composite structures to maintain leadership in aeronautics.

There are no participation fees to attend the workshop, but registration before 23 May 2022 is required.

For any questions related to the AIRPOXY Public Workshop, please contact airpoxy-arttic@eurtd.com

AIRPOXY Approach

AIRPOXY will cover the entire value-chain to solve manufacturing process cost-effectiveness challenges.

To achieve this, AIRPOXY gathers a multidisciplinary consortium of 11 strategic partners from 6 European countries ensuring adequate progress of the technical core activities and the proper validation of the resulting demonstrators.

 

The AIRPOXY work plan includes two main technical phases:

  1. Upgrading 3R technologies from TRL3 to TRL4.
  2. Validation of the technologies in industrial environment to reach TRL5 by manufacturing and testing two demonstrators: 1) a sub-component of a FAN-COWL formed by a skin, a transverse stiffener and a longitudinal stiffener, and 2) a sub-component of a LEADING-EDGE formed by a nose and two webs.
