NEWS 73 • Before the joining, the Dyneema is rinsed with acetone and the rod is wiped with solvent and abraded. • The Dyneema is spliced into a loop at one end. • In a process known as milking, the other end of the braided tube is saturated with Gougeon Pro-set 176/276 rubber-toughened epoxy adhesive and stretched around the pultruded rod until the rod is a few inches from the loop. • A high-temperature shrink-wrap tube is pulled over the braid/rod. • The part is heated with a heat gun to achieve consoli- dation and cure of the epoxy. • A #10 aluminum eye (Harken, Pewaukee, WI, US) is centered into the loop of the braid for boat attach hardware (Fig. 4, p. 74). High-tech, but still accessible Bieker graduated in 1987 from the Naval Architecture depart- ment at the University of California Berkeley, which at that time, he says, included no composites courses in its curriculum: "So, I learned most of what I know about composites from building these I-14 boats. And that was a nice way to learn, because one of the typical flaws I see in composite design today is parts High-tech but Accessible C O M P O S I T E P R O C E S S M A T E R I A L S Aerospace & Defense CERTIFICATIONS Aerospace & Defense CERTIFICATIONS Aerospace & Defense CERTIFICATIONS @DiatexSAS DIATEX SAS SocieteDiatex Booth H29 VACUOPEEL ® INFUPLEX FOR VACUUM INFUSION * designed by DIATEX * FOR VACUUM MOULDING * MU LT IFU NCT IO N A L Product range SM AR T Multilayer Systems PRESENTED BY EVENT DESCRIPTION: As composite manufacturing processes and techniques advance, so must the components that make them suitable replacements from traditional materials. During this webinar we will explain the latest products and technologies available that have been developed specifically to meet the ever demanding and challenging production of composite parts. is latest generation of resins and adhesives tackle both production and high-end application performances challenges in equal measure. is combination makes them an ideal solution for future composites part manufacture. PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN: • About resin technology that allows for "high rate" production • How higher "toughness" leads to more durable products • About dissimilar substrate bonding solutions • What multiple "structural" adhesive technologies are available New Developments in Resin & Adhesive Technology to Meet the Challenges and Demands of Composite Manufacturing September 25, 2018 • 2:00 PM ET REGISTER TODAY FOR WEBINAR AT: SHORT.COMPOSITESWORLD.COM/SBADER925 PRESENTERS TOM GAST Sales Development Manager-Adhesives JEFFREY STARCHER Business Development Manager
