Renegade Materials Corporation, a US-based supplier of highly heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives for the aerospace industry, is expanding its prepreg production by 2.5 times.
The increased capacity, which aligns with Renegade’s capacity expansion strategy at the Miamisburg, Ohio location, is the result of a $4 million investment made in December 2019 and the construction was started in March 2020. Operation of the new production lines will commence January 2022.
Renegade Materials' heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives are trusted by US and European aircraft manufacturers and aircraft engine suppliers.
The company was established in 1993 as a resin manufacturer and launched its thermoset prepreg business for aerospace applications under the Renegade brand in 2007. Renegade holds expertise in the production of both high heat-resistant RTM resins and adhesives from low toxicity materials as well as in unique thermal-cycle resistant prepregs.
The company’s proprietary heat-resistant thermoset prepregs are being utilised in the production of next-generation aircraft.
By boosting its prepreg capacity, the company is prioritising the use of high-performance materials in the production of advanced aerospace solutions and industrial applications to meet diverse demands in the global market.
