PARK ELECTROCHEMICAL CORP. ANNOUNCES THE INTRODUCTION OF
E-752-LT TOUGHENED EPOXY RESIN SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATED FIBER PLACEMENT (AFP) PROCESSING FOR AEROSPACE COMPOSITE STRUCTURES
Melville, New York, Monday, March 9, 2015…..Park Electrochemical Corp. (NYSE–PKE) announced the introduction of its new E-752-LT toughened, 350°F (177°C) cure epoxy resin system for Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) processing. E-752-LT is designed for aerospace primary and secondary structural applications and is available in standard modulus and intermediate modulus precision slit tapes and fabrics.
Park’s E-752-LT has been formulated to optimize efficient processing in AFP applications for high volume manufacturing. The controlled rheology of E-752-LT has been specifically designed to facilitate a wide range of laminate processing for autoclave, out-of-autoclave and press cures with low laminate void content (capable of < 1%). The resin system offers a combination of toughness, low moisture absorption and very good mechanical properties. E-752-LT has a dry Tg of 428°F (220°C) and a wet Tg of 315°F (157°C).
