Toray Industries displayed its latest in composites innovation at CAMX 2019 Conference and Tradeshow in Anaheim, California—the largest advanced materials event in North America. Toray Advanced Composites, Toray Composite Materials America, and Toray Performance Materials Corporation exhibited together for the first time at this event.
Toray displayed the latest in TORAYCA® carbon fibre products, aerospace composite prepregs, out-of-autoclave thermoset prepregs, high temperature polyimide prepregs, Toray CFRT® laminates and component parts, and the market-leading Toray AmberTool® composite tooling prepregs. In addition to displays in the booth, the Toray Envir-Bond® and Inflatable Composites Air Core Composite™ technologies were selected as finalists for ACE and CAMX awards respectively—these items were on display in the Awards Pavilion.
As a leader in structural, low-dielectric composite radome materials, Toray Advanced Composites highlighted TC522, a new, highly toughened, modified epoxy prepreg resin system for the radome and communications market. TC522 has an excellent balance of electrical and mechanical properties for highly loaded dielectric structures in severe impact environments, making it ideal for the newest generation of supersonic aircraft and defense systems.
Steve Mead, Managing Director for Toray Advanced Composites, said “The aerospace market is growing at a rate that demands innovation and capacity. We are focused on creating products that will enable the next generation of transportation, such as urban air mobility, supersonic, and more fuel-efficient commercial aircraft. It is an incredibly exciting time for the composites industry, as we are enabling things that, as kids, we never would have thought possible.”
