Plastics for Aerospace

Plastics for Aerospace

10,000 m flight altitude, nearly 1,000 km/h speed and an outdoor temperature of -50 °C – as passengers, we don't feel a thing. Aerospace engineers master many challenges to take us to our destination quickly and safety: Aeroplanes must be very light-weight, fuel-efficient, but at the same time mechanically stable and perfectly safe. Additionally, every airline wants to increase its fleet's performance and minimise maintenance times. Constructors therefore must develop aeroplanes that are long reliable even at high stress. We support these constructors with our aerospace plastics. We offer a great selection of thermoplastic and composites suitable for these demanding conditions. They will help you in construction of light-weight, safe and long-lived aircraft.

Your advantages

Typical areas - aerospace plastics

Application examples

PTFE ball seat for in-flight re-fueling system

Ball seats for in-flight re-fueling systems made in virgin or filled PTFE. Chemically resistant to fuels and with a low co-efficient of friction, filled grades give greater resistance to wear and deformation under load.

Housing for fueling system

Machined in tight tolerances housing for fuel systems made of SustaPEEK® are resistant to fuels and suitable for a broad range of continuous use temperatures.
