NEXX Technologies

On Monday, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America's (MGCA) NEXX Technologies advanced composites business unit announced its strategic partnership with Tipton-Goss, Inc. This partnership will allow NEXX Technologies to leverage Tipton-Goss' unique high-performance prepreg and film adhesive technologies in the advanced composites, space and aerospace market segments. 

With over three decades of advanced composites formulating and manufacturing experience, Tipton-Goss has developed a unique prepreg architecture that gives exceptional vacuum-bag-only processing capabilities while achieving autoclave-quality results. "We're very excited to have such a well-established partner as Mitsubishi Gas Chemical bring these disruptive technologies to market," noted Guy Riddle, President of Tipton-Goss, Inc. 

NEXX Technologies' Enduredge Max portfolio of modified epoxy and cyanate prepregs offers performance and processing characteristics suitable for aerospace, space, radomes and defense. Enduredge Max advanced materials boast extended out-time and excellent vacuum-bag-only processing. 

"The Tipton-Goss prepreg architecture and resin technology is a breakthrough for our industry. The time saved by eliminating out-time tracking and material re-qualifications, freezing, thawing and re-freezing material, in addition to simplified processing requirements, will result in significant cost savings for the parts fabricator, without sacrificing quality. This compilation of Tipton's high-performance prepreg architecture and resin technology is the solution our industry has been waiting on for years," said Joseph Kidd, General Manager of NEXX Technologies. 

NEXX Technologies is located in southern California with administrative headquarters within Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America located in NYC and distributing worldwide. For more information, reach out to Joe Kidd at or visit
