A hybrid, woven textile material that can be used in the manufacturing of fiber- reinforced composite materials. The hybrid textile material is a woven fabric composed of unidirectional fibers interlaced with strips of non-woven fibers in a weaving pattern. In an embodiment, the hybrid textile material is porous or permeable with respect to liquid resins used in Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) processes and a preform formed from this textile material can be infused with liquid resins during such RTM processes.


Prepregs and composite articles contain resin compositions comprising an epoxy thermosetting resin; and at least two types of interlaminar toughening particles; wherein a first type of interlaminar toughening particles are insoluble in said epoxy thermosetting resin; wherein a second type of interlaminar toughening particles are partially soluble or swellable in said epoxy thermosetting resin.


A resin-rich peel ply that does not leave behind residual fibers after peeling and can work well with different resin-based composite substrates. The resin-rich peel ply is composed of a woven fabric impregnated with a resin matrix different from the resin matrix of the composite substrate. The peel ply is designed such that, upon manual removal of the peel ply from the composite substrates surface, a thin film of the peel ply resin remains on the composite substrates surface to create a bondable surface capable of bonding with another composite substrate, but no fibrous material from the woven fabric remains on the same surface.

A method for making a composite structure with a surfacing film thereon. The surfacing film is co-cured with fiber-reinforced resin composite materials. The surfacing film is formed from a curable resin composition containing an epoxy novolac resin, a tri-functional or tetra-functional epoxy resin, ceramic microspheres, an amine-based curing agent, particulate inorganic fillers; and a toughening component. The surfacing film exhibits high T_(g )and high cross-linked density after curing, as well as high resistance to paint stripper solutions.

A dry, fibrous tape for use in an automated placement process such as ATL or AFP and a preform produced therefrom. The preform is configured for resin infusion. The tape contains a layer of unidirectional fibers, at least one nonwoven veil bonded to one side of the fiber layer, and at least binding materials present within the tape. The preform produced from laying down such tape exhibits a low-bulk property that is close to the final thickness of the cured fiber- reinforced resin article and no further consolidation or compaction is required.

An adhesive composition suitable for reverse osmosis modules, the adhesive composition includes (I) a polyurethane composition that includes (A) an isocyanate group-containing pre-polymer comprising a reaction product of (i) castor oil or a derivative thereof; and (ii) a polyisocyanate; and (iii) optionally a second polyol; and (B) an isocyanate-reactive polyol mixture comprising: (i) a polybutadiene polyol; and (ii) a urethane catalyst; and (iii) optionally the second polyol; and (II) a plasticizer wherein the adhesive composition is essentially free from diluent oils and solvents.


Stabilizing compositions for stabilizing materials against degradation due to thermal and ultraviolet light exposure are disclosed herein. In some instances, the stabilizing compositions include an ortho-hydroxyl tris-aryl-s-triazine compound; a hindered amine light stabilizer compound; a hindered hydroxybenzoate compound; a phosphite compound, an acid scavenger and/or thioester; and a hindered phenol antioxidant compound.

An electrically conductive surfacing material capable of providing sufficient conductivity for lightning strike protection (LSP) and/or electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding is disclosed. The conductive surfacing material is a multi-layered structure having a very thin conductive layer (e.g. solid metal foil) and a resin film formed on at least one surface of the conductive layer. The resin film is formed from a curable resin composition containing an epoxy novolac resin, a tri-functional or tetra-functional epoxy resin, ceramic microspheres, a latent amine-based curing agent, particulate inorganic fillers; and a toughening component. Optionally, the resin film further includes conductive additives to increase electrical conductivity of the surfacing material. The resin film exhibits high T_(g )as well as high resistance to paint stripper solutions. Furthermore, the conductive surfacing material is suitable for co-curing with fiber-reinforced resin composite substrates.
