Case Study: Nacelle Lining + Arovex®

Zyvex delivered the toughest solution for a global aerospace leader's next generation engine

Zyvex delivered the toughest solution for a global aerospace leader's next generation engine

Zyvex partnered with one of the largest global aerospace manufacturers to help them deliver the next generation in commercial engines. They needed a lighter, tougher nacelle lining with increased toughness, zero weight gain, and no major price increases over standard solutions.

Our Solution

Zyvex developed a new 350°F curing carbon fiber variant of Arovex®, the class-leading prepreg enhanced with nano-materials. Arovex® underwent a battery of tests over two years against the toughest composites in the world.

The Result

Arovex® withstood all challengers, coming out on top as the toughest, most effective composite available. Arovex® delivered +42% toughness, 0% weight gain, and competitive pricing.

 

Industry Consortium: Nanotechnology Development for Airbus

Zyvex Technologies is part of a 5-year research and development consortium for Airbus led by the National Composites Center in Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Zyvex is providing technology related to the dispersion of carbon nanotubes intended to improve the mechanical properties of high performance composites.

"Airbus is proud and excited to be a partner with the NCC and Ohio as we work together to develop the composite technology for the next generation of aircraft,” said Allan McArtor, Chairman-Airbus Americas. “Airbus’ intent is to double its procurement spend in the U.S. over the next few years, and there’s no reason Ohio companies can’t benefit from that. The state has so much to offer, and we already have a growing and thriving partnership. I predict even more great things in the future.”
