ÉireComposites is delighted to announce that it will be participating in the Horizon2020 €6.5m AIRPOXY project from September 2018 (funded under H2020-MG-2017, Mobility for Growth).
The purpose of the project is to develop thermoformable, repairable and bondable epoxy-based composites for aeronautical structures. The end-goal is to reduce the production and maintenance costs of composite parts in the aeronautical sector. This will be achieved by introducing a novel family of thermoset composites that preserve all the advantages of conventional thermosets, while showing new, unprecedented features such as Reprocessability, Reparability and Recyclability.
ÉireComposites recently exited examinership and secured significant investment from its shareholders. As part of AIRPOXY, which is worth €750,000 to ÉireComposites, the company will apply its expertise in thermoforming and bonding to the manufacture of proof-of-concept components which demonstrate the advantages of these newly developed composite materials.
