Kubota Research’s P-Wave/PTIR(TM) IR Assisted Advanced Out Of Autoclave (OOA) Process

HOCKESSIN, Del., Aug. 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Kubota Research Associates, Inc. headquartered in Hockessin, Delaware, has developed a new P-Wave/PTIR™ IR Assisted Advanced Out Of Autoclave process to enhance adhesion properties as well as significantly accelerate the curing speed of thermoset resin systems for installing Adhesive Bonded Fasteners (ABF) such as CLICKBOND® studs and standoff onto composite fuselage and metal structures.

The TRL 7 process was demonstrated for the US NAVY Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) through a NAVAIR SBIR Phase II N08-030 program and jointly evaluated at Bell Helicopter and the University of Delaware Center for Composite Materials (UDel-CCM).

OEM qualified room temperature cured structure grade two part epoxy adhesives such as Henkel Hysol® EA9394 and Magnobond® 6398 are used to install CLICKBOND® fasteners onto composite fuselages. These adhesives are extremely temperature sensitive for curing and typically set in 24 hours and cure in 5 to 7 days at 25 C/77 F. The P-Wave/PTIR™ process used with the same qualified adhesives can bond and cure the fasteners onto the substrate in less than 10 minutes. The process can be applied under a broad range of operating temperature conditions from -20 C (-4 F) to 50 C (122 F).

The process enhances wettability between the adhesive and substrates to significantly increase the fastener to substrate bonding strength. In addition, the P-Wave/PTIR™ ABF installation fixture is reusable and replaces the disposable one time use Pressure Application Fixture.

The P-Wave/PTIR™ IR Assisted Advanced Out Of Autoclave module and fastener bonding test results were exhibited at the 2012 NAVY Opportunity Forum. Kubota Research will participate the Matchmaking at The 2012 National SBIR Beyond Phase II Conference at Indianapolis, Indiana on September 10 – 13, 2012.

Kubota Research Associates is a member of the UDel-CCM University-Industry Consortium, a globally recognized center of excellence for research and knowledge in the advanced composites industry.

Mike Kubota, CEO of Kubota Research Associates said, “We are pleased to have established a working relationship with UDel-CCM. Our company along with our global partner Bell Helicopter looks forward to collaborating with UD-CCM to advance the development of P-Wave/PTIR technology to bring a new generation of cost-effective composite parts manufacturing methods to the industry.”

A complete description of UDel-CCM and the Consortium can be found at http://www.ccm.udel.edu .

About Kubota Research Associates, Inc.:
Founded in 2000, Kubota Research Associates Inc. is a technology company that has developed and patented the award winning P-Wave™ technology, a unique new process for joining plastics and manufacturing advanced composites. The company manufactures and markets plastic joining systems, while providing custom-engineered composite fabrication solutions to the worldwide market.

The P-Wave/PTIR™ process technology invented by Kubota Research is a core technology for the development of a range of new continuous fiber reinforced thermoset and thermoplastic composites that have cost/performance characteristics exceeding the performance of conventionally manufactured composites.

SpaceX Utilizes Tiger-Tight Corp’s Friction Washer Technology for Its First Mission to The International Space Station

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y., July 18, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — TIGER-TIGHT CORP., a subsidiary of Precision Aerospace Components, Inc. (PINK:PAOS), had its proprietary friction washer technology used by Space Exploration Technologies (known as SpaceX) on the Dragon spacecraft launched atop a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on May 22, 2012.

The TIGER-TIGHT technology operates on a micro-topographic scale. Industrial diamonds embedded in an electro-less nickel matrix penetrate and interlock with the mating surfaces to create an extremely high retaining force and prevent loosening under vibration and shock. (*See the Diamond Matrix Graphic below.)

Because the interaction is at the micro level, there is no critical damage to the affected surfaces.

Tiger-tight washers and shims promote safe, effective joints under static and dynamic load conditions by resisting loosening from external transverse loads and/or distributing the joint pre-load.

Tests conducted on a Junker Vibration Test Rig, designed to impart transverse cyclic loads on a fastener joint, show Tiger-tight outperforms all other competitors tested.

About Precision Aerospace Components, Inc.:
Precision Aerospace Components, Inc. (OTCBB:PAOS / PINK:PAOS) is a provider of quality aerospace and industrial components. Precision is building a leading component, fabrication and service business. Management is growing the company through a combination of product line expansions and strategic acquisitions. Precision Aerospace Components, Inc. and its subsidiaries, Freundlich Supply Company, Inc. and Tiger-Tight Corp. are among the first U.S. based fastener distributors to receive AS-9100 Rev. C certification; they are also certified to ISO-9001. Its other subsidiaries are Aero-Missile Components, Inc., which is certified to AS-9020 and ISO 9001, and Creative Assembly Systems, Inc., which is certified to ISO 9001. More details are available on its website: http://www.precaeroinc.com/ .

About Tiger-Tight:
Tiger-Tight Corp. is the North American master distributor of Tiger-Tight Friction Washers. Tiger-Tight washers promote safe, effective bolted joints under static and dynamic load conditions by distributing the pre-load and resisting loosening from external transverse loads. Its patented coating features industrial diamonds embedded in an electro-less nickel matrix that penetrate and interlock with the mating surfaces to create an extremely high retaining force and prevent joint relaxation. Additional product information is available on its website: http://www.tigertight.com/ .

About SpaceX:
SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches the world’s most advanced rockets and spacecraft. With a diverse manifest of 40 launches to deliver commercial and government satellites to orbit, SpaceX is the world’s fastest growing launch services provider. In 2012, SpaceX made history when its Dragon spacecraft became the first commercial vehicle in history to successfully attach to the International Space Station-a feat previously achieved by only four governments. With the retirement of the space shuttle, the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft are carrying cargo, and one day astronauts, to and from the space station for NASA.

Founded in 2002 by Elon Musk, SpaceX is a private company owned by management and employees, with minority investments from Founders Fund, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, and Valor Equity Partners. The company has more than 1,800 employees in California, Texas, Florida and Washington, D.C. For more information, visit http://spacex.com/ .
