ESA Approves More Windform Composites for Space Flight Applications

The products from CRP Technology's Windform TOP-LINE passed ESA standard screening outgassing tests in accordance with ESA-TEC-PR-002015 (based on ECSS-Q-ST-70-02C) By Phoebe Grinter / 10 Feb 2023

Carbon fiber reinforced composite Windform RS and Glass fiber reinforced composite Windform LX 3.0 from CRP Technology‘s Windform TOP-LINE have passed ESA standard screening outgassing tests in accordance with ESA-TEC-PR-002015 (based on ECSS-Q-ST-70-02C).

This means that they are now officially approved for the construction of applications to launch into space.

“Passing the outgassing tests is a crucial factor for those who supply materials to the Space industry,” said Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director of CRP Technology. “The majority of Windform TOP-LINE composites are already approved for space applications, and now that two more Windform are officially compliant with ESA outgassing requirements, we are more competitive and ready to offer further added value to our most demanding customers.”

The test was conducted in the μVCM facility of the TEC-QEE laboratory at ESA’s ESTEC technical center in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

Windform RS and Windform LX 3.0 join Windform XT 2.0 (passed both ESA and NASA standard screening outgassing tests); Windform SP and Windform GT (passed NASA standard screening outgassing tests).
