New CHART project «Resins» started

Development of optimized resin systems for SC magnet coil production (Resins) (MagRes)

The project shall establish a body of knowledge towards an improved performance of Nb3Sn accelerator magnets. These goals shall be advanced by R&D on epoxies and other matrix systems in order to reduce training (avoid cracking, avoid delamination, avoid micro-plastic events) and to reduce the stresses on Nb3Sn wires during the mechanical loading phases.
