Solutions for Engines and Nacelles
Aircraft engines have evolved to include so many major composite components that carbon fiber epoxy prepregs account for typically half the volume of the entire nacelle structure. The next step for aero- engine designers has been to apply composites technology to more complex structures within the engine itself. A new treatment for our honeycomb core called Acousti-Cap® has been proven to quiet jet engine noise more effectively than any competing system and has been specified on the Boeing 787 nacelles. A unique capability to weave carbon on a 45 degree bias helps our customer reduce scrap and our toughest carbon fiber prepreg system won a position for the front fan blade on the new GEnx engine.
