In the aerospace industry joints and seals are tested to their limits. There’s the severe stress from g-forces on take-off, landing and manoeuvers, while temperatures and pressure changes are extreme and rapid during ascent and descent.
The changes in temperature aircrafts experience during flight, cause gaskets to expand and contract, which over time can lead to gasket fatigue.
For such a challenging application, one small component can make the biggest difference. Selecting the right gasket material can minimize downtime, maintain safety and maximize the efficiency of operations.
The application range includes seals for wings and moving surfaces – including complex aerodynamic semi-structural seal systems , fabricated seals and extrusions for wing seals, doors and hatches, interior couplings, inflatable cockpit canopy seals and fuselage fairings.
