Realizing the Benefits of Syntactic Materials in Composite Structures

Low density syntactic materials give many opportunities to optimize weight, performance and manufacturing of composite structures.

Syntactic materials are most commonly used in sandwich aplications and can be expanding or non-expanding. Expanding materials are used mainly in applications such as honeycomb core splice, edge close-out and to provide reinforcement around attachment points. Additional applications include abradable seals for aircraft engines. Non-expanding syntactic materials provide high shear and crush strength compared to other traditional sandwich alternatives. Syntactic materials also provide manufacturing and processing flexibility. The webinar will discuss applications and benefits that can be achieved using syntactic materials.

Participants will learn:

  • Where do syntactic materials bring value?
  • Different types of syntactic materials: expanding, non-expanding, structural
  • Practical applications and benefits
