SAERTEX EXTENDS CARBON-FIBER CONTRACT WITH BOMBARDIER
Bombardier Belfast and SAERTEX® have reached an agreement to contractually extend their cooperation on the manufacture of lightweight components made of carbon-fiber, non-crimp-fabrics for the Airbus A220 aircraft.
SAERTEX supplies textile reinforcement materials and carbon fiber non-crimp-fabrics, with which Bombardier produces wing skins for the A220 aircraft using its unique resin transfer infusion (RTI) manufacturing process. Bombardier’s carbon-fiber wings are the largest and most complex composite structures designed, manufactured and assembled, using this RTI technology.
