NEW YORK, April 20, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America announced Wednesday, its advanced materials business unit, NEXX Technologies, will be launching their NTB-500 BMI resin system during JEC World 2023, April 25 – 27 in Paris, France.
NTB-500 BMI is a prepreg system devised to be used in a wide range of high-temperature composite applications and is available on all fabrics and unidirectional tapes. It is designed to provide excellent out-of-autoclave processing utilizing NEXX Technologies’ unique engineered air release channels that provide z-directional breathing along with a very low-volatile resin chemistry.
“NTB-500 BMI prepreg is a definite leap forward for NEXX Technologies’ advanced materials,” said Joseph Kidd, General Manager of NEXX Technologies. “For years, there have been limited offerings for high-temp prepreg materials. With NTB-500 BMI, as with all of our prepreg products, we can expedite short lead times ranging from a few days to a few weeks. We are excited to expand our offerings to the market.”
In addition to showcasing NTB-500 BMI, NEXX will be exhibiting their unique line of modified epoxy and cyanate ester prepreg materials. NEXX Technologies’ prepregs all boast finished parts that demonstrate minimal through thickness void content (often <1%) and pin-hole free surfaces.
The advanced composites division of MGCA is in southern California with distribution worldwide. For more information, contact Joseph Kidd at [email protected] or stop by Booth A32, Hall 6 at the JEC World Show in Paris.
