Kordsa developed a broad range of strong, lightweight and low fire smoke toxicity products to be used in both primary and secondary aircraft structures. The products show high stiffness, good impact resistance and the required thermal performance. Kordsa provides both 120 °C and 180 °C curable epoxy prepregs for aviation industry which can be supplied with any kind of unidirectional (UD) and woven carbon or glass fabrics. Kordsa’s epoxy products are made with toughened matrix and the prepregs obtained thereof show excellent drape as well as tack. The highest glass transition temperature reached with epoxy products in the case of EF 12 is above 200 °C and . Kordsa’s product portfolio also includes cyanate ester prepreg with good dimensional stability and high temperature resistance (CM 13) with Tg of 250 °C. The products offered for the aerospace industry are mainly tailored for autoclave curing.
