Airbus qualification for structural foam


3A Composites has achieved qualification from Airbus for its Airex R82.80 rigid high-performance core.

The material is said to be suitable for aerospace sandwich applications owing to outstanding fire resistance, exceeding the most stringent flammability, smoke density, heat release and toxic gas emission requirements, such as FAR 25.853.

Airex R82.80 follows lower density R82.60 in obtaining Airbus qualification.
