Our Aerospace coatings cover a
wide range of applications such as extending component life against
wear, thermal barriers to reduce material operating temperatures and
coatings to improve engine running efficiency.
In the field of aviation guaranteed
performance is vital, our pressure testing service and subsequent
impregnation where required, ensures the integrity of fuel delivery
Jet engines rely on high friction
protective coating. For example, an aircraft at full power during
take-off, especially in hot desert regions, the exposed fore-end fan
assembly is subjected to intense bombardment from sand and other
airborne particles. To combat this, a leading engine manufacturer
employs Armourcote® to apply a three part protective coating to the
annulus filler that separates the blades. Exposed surfaces use a
formulation that acts as an anti-erosion shield, whilst the
metal-to-metal contact section employs a dry film lubrication system to
minimise fretting corrosion.
We provide wear and corrosion resistant
surface coatings for a range of industrial applications for various
clients some of which are Westland Helicopter, Airbus UK, Raytheon,
Martin Baker, Honeywell and Goodrich Actuation Systems, Rolls Royce,
Hales Air Defence.
