HEATCON Designs Affordable Option for Aerospace Companies Struggling to Perform Costly Composite Repairs

While the repair of many composite structures may typically be performed using only hot bonders, the vacuum-generated pressure may not reach a sufficient level for more complex repairs, which could require 50 psi or higher. The patented, easy-to-use RepairClave provides aerospace facilities with the capability to perform these higher-pressure repairs at a much lower price than that of a traditional autoclave. With the absence of inert gases typically required for the pressure application process, the RepairClave provides a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative at a fraction of the cost. Heatcon’s portable autoclave combines heat blanket technology with one pressure zone and multiple heater control zones to provide even air pressure and localized heat. Instead of heating the entire autoclave pressure vessel in order to achieve the temperature needed for curing a component, localized heat is applied by the same silicone rubber heat blankets used in the hot bonder repair. Only the actual repair area is heated, and since the volume of air inside the RepairClave does not reach cure temperatures, the use of an inert gas is not required. The RepairClave keeps things as simple as possible while still meeting required composite material curing specifications. In addition, some aerospace experts consider autoclaves to be overkill for most repair scenarios, but very appropriate for the RepairClave. HEATCON designed the RepairClave to be portable to appeal to aerospace firms with expanding operations, and to have added flexibility in shop floor layouts. RepairClaves are currently being used by helicopter manufacturers, universities, aerospace companies and others. Find out more at
