general spec comments
General Spec Comments
  • Development of Material and Process Controls prior to any qualification program to determine robustness of a given material system and process is essential.
  • Majority of DOE’s focus on mixture studies and not resultant process variables.
  • Cost barriers prevent sequential DOE’s during product development/introduction and are only performed as a result of production issues.
general spec comments1
General Spec Comments
  • Qualification process for both industry and end-user specifications must use same criteria for establishment of spec limits, material equivalence and allowables.
  • Specification limits, equivalency limits and allowables using procedures in DOT/FAA/AR-0047 and MIL-HDBK-17
  • Need material equivalency limits in end-user specs.
prepreg fabric spec comments
Prepreg Fabric Spec Comments
  • Batch Definitions-The quantity of material must have minimal variation in properties throughout to be considered a unique batch. This statement applies to all batch definitions.
  • Fibers-Line Qualifications are missing.
  • Fabrics-Weaver qualification process is missing as multiple weavers are qualified and used for fabric prepregs using same style of fabric material.
prepreg fabric spec comments1
Prepreg Fabric Spec Comments
  • Solvent Impregnation-Robustness less than Hot-Melt impregnation due to chemical advancement during impregnation process.
  • Blending of hot-melt batches in fabric impregnation is not allowed and require same lots of raws.
  • Solvent impregnation-Blending of up to 5 resin lots proposed with no restrictions on raws. What is rationale? Product inconsistency!
prepreg fabric spec comments2
Prepreg Fabric Spec Comments
  • Fabric Requirements in Table 2A-Alignment and waviness is not usually measured until the prepreg is produced.
  • Add Sizing percent due to use of DI water as a process aid in carbon fabric weaving.
  • Prepregs manufacturers want desized FAW not dry FAW. FAW controls fiber loading and CPT.
prepreg fabric spec comments3
Prepreg Fabric Spec Comments
  • Batch testing frequency of 500# needs to be increased due to improved product consistency versus prepreg tape materials.
  • Testing at the start and end of each prepreg fabric roll for physical property requirements in Table 3 is redundant.
  • CPT required for equivalency baseline database to ensure same part thickness and reduce mfg. costs
prepreg fabric spec comments4
Prepreg Fabric Spec Comments
  • Rationale and linkage for equivalency baseline sampling plans to certification testing is missing. Why are the test plans for equivalency data development higher than normal certification testing?
  • Changes to qualified materials need interchangeability criteria as true material equivalency is not obtained in practice.
  • Baseline process needs to address cool-down rates.
general spec comments2
General Spec Comments
  • Compression After Impact(CAI) testing needs to include BVID level testing to evaluate any changes in BVID as a result of changes to a material system or fabricator.
liquid molded materials comments
Liquid Molded Materials Comments
  • All constituent materials used in the LRM process must be controlled and have end-user shelf-life and storage life validated prior to qualification.
  • This includes dry fabric preforms, fabric sizing/finish, tackifiers, binders, and liquid resin components,etc. that impact LRM processability.
  • Baseline process definition critical to success. Sequential DOE’s are needed to develop a robust process.
liquid molded materials comments1
Liquid Molded Materials Comments
  • Development of little y’s(process variants) though process mapping is critical to ensure stability of big Y’s(final part). You must reduce the noise level to see the process interactions.
  • Most often the little y’s ( items currently not measured or controlled) impact the big Y’s. You need lots of little y’s to ensure repeatability of your process.
