AeroPaste® 1003 from Syensqo is a new grade of the company’s epoxy-based structural paste adhesives, joining the AeroPaste 1006 and 1100 products. According to Syensqo, the aerospace adhesive will increase part assembly efficiency and provide great processing flexibility, making it ideal for targeted high production rates in markets such as advanced air mobility, commercial aerospace, and defense.

The new adhesive 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, reportedly 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.

“Syensqo’s long standing leadership in the development of aerospace adhesive technologies has led us to develop the next-generation of paste adhesives that meet the industry’s need for higher rate assembly and joining,” said Dr. Stephen Heinz, vice president of research and innovation of Syensqo’s Composite Materials Business. 

Heinz is delivering the keynote speech at SAMPE Long Beach 2024, providing thought leadership on how the Materials & Process community can best prepare to support future innovations within the aerospace and defense industries.
