Developing lighter wing flaps

Reducing Friction in Wing Flaps

We produced a self-lubricating plastic solution that delivered to our customer’s needs and resulted in a lighter plane with a lower risk of failure and reduced maintenance requirements. Better fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions helped create a more sustainable aircraft.
