The NTB-500 BMI resin system from Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America’s (New York City, N.Y., U.S.) advanced materials business unit, NEXX Technologies, is a prepreg system devised to be used in a range of high-temperature composite applications, such as radomes, launch vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), advanced air mobility (AAM) and satellites. Additionally, the NTB-500 BMI resin system is available on all fabrics and unidirectional (UD) tapes. It is designed to provide notable out-of-autoclave (OOA) processing using NEXX Technologies’ distinct engineered air release channels that provide Z-directional breathing along with a very low volatile resin chemistry.

“NTB-500 BMI prepreg is a definite leap forward for NEXX Technologies’ advanced materials,” says Joseph Kidd, general manager at NEXX Technologies. “For years, there have been limited offerings for high-temp prepreg materials. With NTB-500 BMI, as with all of our prepreg products, we can expedite short lead times ranging from a few days to a few weeks. We are excited to expand our offerings to the market.”
