Curing of Composites

Electron beam curing of adhesives and resins is an emerging technology offering significant advantages for the rapid manufacturing of a variety of composite structures and components. E-beam composite curing offers unique improvements over traditional thermal curing methods.

Applications of Curing Composite Materials

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Consumer applications

Benefits of Electron Beam Curing

  • Shorter curing times
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Reduced volatile emissions
  • Less expensive tooling materials

The curing of composites via electron beam can occur quickly at both ambient and sub-ambient temperatures. Electron beam processing not only increases throughput, but it also allows a high level of control over e-beam doses and the composite curing energy-absorption profile. E-beam cured materials possess excellent mechanical properties, even after thermal or cryogenic cycling.
