Hybrid Composite Systems
Seamless integration between PSC-10 and UHT-21 materials systems via co-fabrication. Only put the refractory where it’s needed
Co-fabrication of PSC-10 and UHT-21 to save weight and cost without loss of performance.
A common prepreg system enables co-lamination and curing of PSC-10 and UHT-21 in the preform state. The materials systems are combined and co-processed as one component through our entire fabrication process.
Benefit to Customer
The refractory-modified pre-preg is only placed in the hot sections where necessary for the component to have greater thermal resistance. The rest of the component is the PSC-10 system which saves both weight and cost relative to a fully refractory-modified component with no appreciable difference to the mechanical properties of the system.
