Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastic Modules Can Be Used to Reinforce Airplane Cargo Compartments
The use of thermoplastic fiber composites enables outstanding specific stiffness and flame retardant properties to be combined with reaction-free and integrative joining technologies. This has been demonstrated by using an economical, industrial-scale process to manufacture a hybrid reinforcing component, which can be applied for example in the cargo compartments of airplanes.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
