Airbus unveiled its third H160 prototype helicopter, which uses Hexcel's reinforcements, prepregs, adhesives and honeycomb materials for fuselage structures and main rotor blades.

Hexcel Corporation participated in the unveiling of the third H160 prototype from Airbus Helicopters, featuring a striking carbon-inspired livery that represents the composite materials Hexcel supplies for the helicopter.

Hexcel's reinforcements, prepregs, adhesives and honeycomb materials had been selected for the H160's composite fuselage structures and main rotor blades, contributing to the lightweight fuel-saving design and performance optimization.

Airbus Helicopters decided to promote the H160 program and its high carbon fiber content in a way that recalls the livery previously used for the A350 XWB.

The A350 XWB has a structure that is 53% composites and Hexcel supplies the carbon fiber prepreg for all of the aircraft’s composite primary structures.
