Haydale Composite Solutions has developed electrically-conductive carbon fiber-reinforced composite materials featuring graphene powder with improved resistance to damage from a severe lightning-strike event.
Carbon fiber-reinforced composite materials, as used in many aerospace structures and components, are vulnerable to damage from lightning strikes. However, the addition of functionalised nano materials to epoxy resin through the use of Haydale’s patented plasma functionalisation process, HDPlas, could significantly improve the electrical conductivity of the epoxy resin which allows the laminate to dissipate the energy of the lightning strike throughout the structure.
