SURFAIR Award 2016 – The Innovation Award

  • arton78-91abaThermoSensitive Coatings for Health-Monitoring of CFRP
    From Sophie SENANI, Research Engineer, AIRBUS GROUP INNOVATIONS (France)

The award recognizes the development of a heat-sensitive coating for visual inspection of composite parts. This technological advance is the result of a partnership between Airbus Group Innovations and OliKrom.

To meet the specifications, the development required optimization of the thermochromic property from the design of the pigment to its insertion in an aeronautical paint.
