Smart che­mi­stry in practice

Advan­ced mate­ri­als for avia­tion

The reduc­tion of CO2 emis­si­ons is of cen­tral impor­t­ance not only for the auto­mo­tive indus­try, but also for the avia­tion indus­try. In addi­tion, the envi­ron­men­tal com­pa­ti­bi­lity of mate­ri­als in use is moving into regu­la­tory focus. This app­lies to struc­tu­ral com­pon­ents as well as to inte­rior cabin design.

A tech­no­lo­gi­cal break-through

As experts in the che­mi­cal for­mu­la­tion and manu­fac­tu­ring of com­po­si­tes, Von Roll has achie­ved a quan­tum leap in mate­ri­als rese­arch. Using AI-powe­red tools and cut­ting-edge ana­ly­ti­cal tech­no­logy, our top team has deve­lo­ped an inno­va­tive resin sys­tem that offers uni­que advantages.

It is free of harm­ful sub­s­tan­ces such as anhy­dri­des, phe­nols and sol­vents. At the same time, it easily exceeds the deman­ding aero­space requi­re­ments for mecha­ni­cal strength and fire pro­tec­tion. In addi­tion, it is par­ti­cu­larly easy to pro­cess and trans­port and store non-ref­ri­gera­ted com­pa­red to com­mer­cially avail­able phe­nol-based alternatives.

Nxt­Gen com­po­si­tes for the inte­rior cabin

Our newly deve­lo­ped resin sys­tem is the ori­gin of a whole new pro­duct family. Under the Von Roll Nxt­Gen brand, we are cur­r­ently laun­ching various prep­regs as well as core fil­ler com­pounds for the inte­rior cabin on the glo­bal mar­ket. In this con­text, we are coope­ra­ting with the worl­d’s lar­gest air­craft manufacturers.
