Heat-cured-composite panel-edge finish material
Honeycomb structural panels are currently widely used in a variety of industries, such as aerospace and building construction, for their light weight and rigidity. While panel surfaces typically require no protection, edges are often a problem because the internal structure is exposed.
The L-9000 series heat-cured composite materials save time and labor over traditional two-part paste-type applications for honeycomb-panel edges. Being a pliable tape, L-9000 can be applied quickly and easily to composite honeycomb panels. Oven curing this product at a range of 250 to 275 F provides a volume expansion from 100 to 400 percent. This versatility allows for filling gaps and providing an edge that can machined to optimal fit and finish specifications.
The predictable post-cure density provides uniform material specifications in finished panels and can be saw cut, laser cut, milled, sanded, or lathed to meet demanding fit and finish requirements.
