innovaTive disbOnd aRrest features for loNg thermoplAstic welDed jOints

Project description

Like moving from staples to glue: aircraft composites get even lighter and less expensive

Advanced composites have taken aircraft to new heights more sustainably for more than 30 years. However, certification for airworthiness is rightfully quite strict. Most of these composite parts are still assembled with thousands of mechanical fasteners because getting adhesively bonded joints through the certification process is so much more difficult, time-consuming and expensive. Leveraging the full potential of lightweight composites like high-performance thermoplastics relies on enhanced protection against disbonding. The EU-funded TORNADO project will develop innovative disbond arrest features for integration into high-performance thermoplastic structures, ensuring they pass the 'certification' test.
