The Sky’s The Limit: Material Solutions for the Aerospace & Aviation Markets
Engineered Films in Aircraft Manufacturing
Argotec Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and polymer filmsare designed to meet the stringent industry requirements found in aerospace and aviation development. The aerospace and aviation market thrives on innovation, and the unique mechanical properties of polymer films enable product engineers to design new and creative technology for aircraft. Moreover, its inherent flexibility and resilience make it an excellent choice for areas subject to high stress.
Benefits of Polymer Films in Aerospace & Aviation
Versatile and durable Argotec engineered films offer a broad range of benefits for aerospace and aviation fabrication.Engineered polymer films are meticulously designed to meet specific project needs. They can offer superior resistance to heat, chemicals, or UV radiation.
Lightweight, yet exceptionally strong, these specialty polymer films resist abrasion, corrosion, and high impacts.It’s also highly resilient against harsh environmental conditions, making it a reliable choice for aircraft components.
TPU Film Applications in Airplanes
Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films are a critical component in the aviation industry. The application of TPU films in aviation is extensive and continually growing. These films are used in a wide range of components, from cabin interiors to exterior parts. Specialty polymer films are found in seat covers, armrests, and cabin panels, offering superior durability while ensuring passenger comfort.
On the exterior, engineered films are used as protective layers on wings and fuselage, shielding these parts from wear and tear. TPU-bonded aircraft canopies and windows laminated with optically clear interlayer films are also common utilizations of engineered films in aircrafts. TPU films extend the life of exterior airplane advertising and graphics exposed to harsh and extreme conditions better than PVC.
TPU films are also making their mark in the realm of composite aircraft materials. They’re increasingly used in the fabrication of lightweight, high-strength composites that offer enhanced performance and longevity. From structural components to interior fittings, TPU film applications in aviation are redefining what’s possible in aircraft design and manufacturing.
