JEC Composite Magazine is the leading international forum for end-users and manufacturers in the composites industry published by the EC Group. Specifically targeting the composite industry, this internationally distributed magazine is at once scientific, technical, and promoter of technological innovation, making it a must for the ever-changing world of composites. EC Group, the largest composites industry organization in the world brings to light the growing importance composites materials have in every industrial sector. The magazine has won 2 prestigious Tabbie Awards from the US Association TABPI (Trade Association Business Publications International).

A team of researchers from Republic Polytechnic of Singapore in collaboration with Newcastle University International Singapore used Nano-Tech’s Nano-Force® E100 epoxy resins within an independent study carried out to test and validate a new procedure to repair micro-fractures in existing composites aerostructures. The Nano-Force® E100 epoxy system was tested for its efficiency to heal micro-fracture together with a number of other commercially available products and healants.
Nano-Tech’s Nano-Force® E100 achieved a repair efficiency of 81.4%, against an average of 11.2% for other leading products available commercially worldwide, confirming Nano-Tech products as leader in the market of nano-engineered epoxy resins. The results suggest that the Nano-Force® E100 is the best epoxy resin in the market

Nano-Force® E are a family of nano-engineered epoxy resins designed for wet-layup and infusion for the realization of small, medium and large components when superior mechanical properties are required. The Nano-Force® E family is a two-component epoxy resin engineered to have high resistance and toughness and increased vibration damping. It contains a stable dispersion of carbon nanotubes obtained using Nano-Tech’s ³Dynamics proprietary dispersion technology that allows to transfer the incredible mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes to the final composite.

The results of this independent study highlight the high-end properties of the Nano-Force® E epoxy resin, confirming the potential of the Nano-Force® E100 epoxy resins to repair existing composite structures.
