Advanced Composites Group Ltd. (ACG), part of the Composites Division of Umeco plc, manufactures a range of prepreg materials for aircraft interiors and will be exhibiting on Stand 5F9 in Hall B5 at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in the Hamburg Messe, Germany, between the 18th and 20th May 2010.
ACG's wide range of prepreg materials includes phenolic, epoxy and bismaleimide (BMI) resin systems which are supplied in a number of different formats and fibre reinforcements, such as carbon, E, R and S-Glass.
ACG's prepreg materials exhibit excellent fire performance characteristics such as low heat release and minimal emission of smoke and toxic gases, thus enabling components to meet the mandatory requirements of the FAA's FAR25.853 and Airbus' ABD0031 directives.
ACG's phenolic prepregs are widely used in passenger cabin interior applications for components such as side wall and ceiling panels, partitions, and modular fittings, including: lavatories, galleys, wardrobes and overhead luggage bins, where they offer very high stiffness to weight, particularly as honeycomb-cored structures. ACG's prepregs are also used for seat outer shells, air ducting and cargo liners.
From ACG's prepreg manufacturing facilities in the UK and the USA, and from J.D. Lincoln's facilities in the USA (ACG's sister company and part of Umeco Composites Structural Materials), the Group services all markets by delivering bespoke products to short lead times. This is supported by a global network of dedicated sales and support agencies.
