Finding the Right Product for Your Industry
The composites world is a fast-growing, dynamic market that spans several industries. Lattice Composites offers a wide spectrum of products that have been used in processes from aerospace to oil, and many in between. We created this page to provide customers with information on which of our materials have experienced successes in their industry.
Lattice Composites offers a set of highly customizable, epoxy based adhesive resin systems. Our two part systems cover working times from five to three hundred minutes. Lattice’s single component systems are available in several forms: from a standard paste to a syntactic, low density, edge-fill system. Every adhesive also has a thixotropic, low flow equivalent. Lattice Composites adhesives exhibit high shear strengths to a wide variety of materials and are excellent at bonding dissimilar materials.
Aerospace and Defense
The majority of current innovation in the composites industry is driven by both aerospace and defense companies’ need for advanced materials. The need for high strength, low weight materials is driving the replacement of metals with advanced composites. Lattice Composites provides bulk adhesives, filament winding resins, infusion resins, and molding compounds for use in these industries. Several of our products have been tested and approved to meet various FAR specifications.
Lattice Composites offers a broad range of products that can be used in the automotive industries. Our infusion and winding resins are compatible with most glass sizing chemistries, our adhesives can bond with high strength to a number of different materials, and our molding compound can be used to create strong, low weight interior components. Lattice Composites’ materials have very high temperature resistance, and can operate without losing strength in hot environments.
All of our products at Lattice Composites have excellent water and corrosive resistance properties, making them great materials for use in the Marine industry. Our infusion and winding resins are compatible with most glass sizing chemistries, our adhesives can bond with high strength to a number of different materials, and our molding compound can be used to create strong, low weight interior components.
Oil / Gas
Lattice Composites’ molding compounds and winding/infusion resins exhibit excellent material properties, which is of utmost importance in the oil industry. Materials constructed with Lattice Composites’ resin can be used in situations with high operating temperatures. Our resins have been used with success in scenarios where the operating equipment experiences large amounts of force due to high pressure.
Solar and Wind Energy
Lattice Composites high strength adhesives are an excellent alternative to mechanical fasteners used in solar panel manufacturing and installation. Lattice Composites’ molding compounds can be used to create alternatives to aluminum in solar panel frame construction. Our winding and infusion resins can be used with fiberglass or carbon fiber to create lightweight wind turbine blades.
As trains look to become lighter and faster, the industry is replacing more and more metal components with composites. Lattice Composites molding compounds can be used to create high performance, lightweight parts for coaches and supporting systems. Our adhesives are a lower weight, higher strength alternative to mechanical fasteners for assembly.
