U.S industry giants announce manufacturing and licensing agreement for new environmental and contamination control technology
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
HEATCON® Composite Systems, a world market leader in Composite Repair Solutions and Material Supply, has entered into an agreement with Cornerstone Research Group (CRG Inc) to license CRG’s Deployable Isolation Repair Technology (DIRT BagTM) Products for manufacture and distribution.
The DIRT BagTM provides composite repair technicians with an off-the-shelf solution to provide contamination and environmental control during the repair process. During damage removal, the DIRT BagTM keeps contaminants from entering the surrounding environment and can be used with HEPA vacuum systems. The DIRT BagTM can also be used during the repair layup or curing process to keep outside contaminants from entering the repair area, and can be used with environmental control units that provide temperature and humidity controlled air to the enclosed area.
“This new product is a game changer for those working in repair technology and we are excited to partner with CRG to bring the DIRT BagTM to the composite repair market,” said Eric Casterline, President, HEATCON / HEATCON Composite Systems. “This product is an ideal complement to Heatcon’s portable composite repair equipment, further reducing the time needed to complete a repair.”
The DIRT BagTM is used by both military and commercial aircraft repair organizations, is listed in Boeing structural repair manuals and the F-35 General Use Consumables List (GUCL), and can be used for other applications where contamination control is needed. It can be set up in minutes and can be customized for each repair or coating removal situation.
The product features include:
• Self-adhesive seal
• Custom placement of hand ports and hose ports
• 360º clear viewing area
• Reduction in maintenance costs
• Wind and environmental contamination resistance
• Containment of repair debris
• Temperature/humidity control when coupled with an ECU
• Suitable for use with dust extraction equipment
