TRENDS NOVEMBER 2018 18 CompositesWorld PRESENTERS PRESENTED BY EVENT DESCRIPTION: Oxidized polyacrylonitrile fiber (OPF) is designed for cost-effective, flame and heat resistant solutions in the textile, industrial, aerospace and automotive markets. OPF's many performance features allow for many attractive business propositions. is webinar will detail these features and focus on new and existing product opportunities where OPF's price/performance advantages are best suited. PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN: • Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) between 45 - 55 • Unsurpassed flame and heat stability • Easy processability into yarn, fabric and nonwovens • Efficiently converted into useful carbon fiber products Oxidized Polyacrylonitrile Fiber Properties, End Use Products, Applications and Future Outlook November 15, 2018 • 2:00 PM ET REGISTER TODAY FOR WEBINAR AT: SHORT.COMPOSITESWORLD.COM/ZOLTEK1115 ALAN HANDERMANN General Manager, Global Business Development Technical Fibers DAN BERGMAN Americas Sales Manager for Technical Fibers BIZ BRIEF AMSilk (Planegg, Germany), the world's first industrial supplier of synthetic silk biopolymers, recently announced it has entered into a joint cooperation agree- ment with Airbus (Toulouse, France) to develop a new composite material for use in the aerospace industry. Airbus, which has been one of the aero- space industry's leaders in experimenting with carbon fiber composite materials, intends to explore how AMSilk's Biosteel fiber might allow the company to think differently and more creatively about how commercial aircraft are designed and manufactured. The companies plan to create a new com- posite material using AMSilk's Biosteel fiber technology, which is made from a biopolymer based on natural spider silk and enables lightweight construction with multiple shock resistance and flex- ibility. AMSilk and Airbus aim to launch a prototype material in 2019. J-CORE TM GO BEYOND LIGHTWEIGHT At less than 5lbs/gal, J-CORE 4501 reduces the overall weight of hardtops and provides a strong, reliable bond. Great for smaller part sandwich bonds, too!
