Advancement of Out of Autoclave (OOA) Technology (II)


Out of autoclave (OOA), under vacuum pressure only (VBO) cure processing of composites has been one of the most important fields in the composite industry in the recent years. TenCate Advanced Composites, USA (TCAC) has invested a great deal of time to develop and improve this technology in the last twenty plus years. TCAC has introduced a number of excellent OOA products working in the General Aviation, Aerospace and Space arenas with impressive results. As the demand for higher performance OOA systems continues to grow with the expectation to match or even exceed most properties of autoclave cured systems, more technical innovations have been advanced by TCAC. This paper is presented to amplify the technology yielding higher compression after impact retention (CAI), much higher inter-laminar fracture toughness (GIC, GIIC), open-hole properties, and in-plane shear with better service temperature and moisture resistance capabilities than the current state of the art OOA systems. The new TC380 epoxy prepreg system also delivers much lower void content after cure with improved room temperature working life.
