Phenolic Resins: Prepregs, Honeycomb and Aircraft Interiors


Continued growth in commercial aircraft by Boeing and Airbus with anticipated entry of Mitsubishi and China magnifies the robust opportunities that exist for phenolic resins as the major resin system for prepregs and honeycomb which ultimately are combined for aircraft interior components. Estimates for commercial aircraft by both Boeing and Airbus indicate that for the next 20 years between 36,000 to 38,000 aircraft will be required and represents a value ranging from $4.9 to 5.6 trillion, a huge market opportunity. Hence continued growth and opportunity for aircraft interiors for the OEMs and retrofit, aftermarket is unprecedented.Phenolic resins are combined with glass, carbon or aramid fiber to be transformed into prepregs or with aramid nonwoven into honeycomb both of which are combined into sandwich structures for aircraft interior paneling and flooring. Phenolic resin impregnated fiber materials or prepregs using carbon, glass or aramid fiber are utilized in key advanced composite applications such as cargo liners, ballistic components, and honeycomb/sandwich structures. Market size and key prepreggers will be described as well as new prepreg activities and future trends Non-metallic honeycomb, specifically aramid or Nomex honeycomb will be discussed.  Global market size, important honeycomb and aircraft interiors manufacturers will be identified in conjunction with trends, new developments and future trends. It is interesting to mention the forward integration of Sumitomo Bakelite, global phenolic resins manufacturer, in the acquisition of Vaupell, a leading aircraft interiors manufacturer, and whether other resin manufacturers or formulators may follow in a similar manner for an enhanced access to the aerospace market.
