Syensqo introduces an innovative two-part room-temperature paste for aerospace manufacturers

Syensqo (Belgium) is launching AeroPaste® 1003, a new grade of its epoxy-based structural paste adhesives which already includes AeroPaste® 1006 and 1100. This aerospace adhesive will not only increase part assembly efficiency but also offers great processing flexibility, making it ideal for targeted high production rates in markets such as Advanced Air Mobility, Commercial Aerospace and Defense. 

AeroPaste® 1003 is designed for structural bonding of metallic and composite parts, rapid assembly, repair applications and is suitable for out of autoclave. It has excellent high temperature strength performance, and is easy to mix with controlled flow properties to allow for easy dispensing. It provides film-like properties and performance, comparable or superior to leading film adhesives currently on the market. 

AeroPaste® 1003 can be used in automated processes supporting industrialization requirements in the aerospace industry by increasing manufacturers’ efficiency and output thanks to its fast and easy application. 

Dr. Heinz will also deliver the keynote speech at SAMPE Long Beach 2024 providing thought leadership on how the Materials & Process (M&P) community can best prepare to support future innovations within the aerospace and defense industries.
