Aerospace / Composite Materials

A manufacturer of composite materials for aerospace structures was experiencing shrinkage in the netting substrate that carried an adhesive used to join aircraft components.

Apex analyzed the directional tensions used in applying the adhesive to the current netting substrate. The solution to the shrinkage problem was eliminated when we modified the temperatures and finishing tensions applied to the fabric.

The newly improved fabric no longer shrank and the customer no longer was faced with potentially failing composite parts.
