Our applications

Giving commercial aviation a lift

MCAM-CommAviation-Aircraft Interiors

Aircraft Interiors

We’re using our efficient and scalable manufacturing technologies to develop FST (Flame, Smoke, Toxicity) compliant high-performance materials and parts that are helping to re-shape the floor panels, seats and side walls of commercial aircraft.
MCAM-CommAviation-Propulsion

Propulsion

Our heat-resistant, lightweight and corrosion resistant materials are already replacing metal and ceramic components in nacelle applications. In addition, the successful implementation of propellers and battery casings in Space and Automotive vehicles can also be applied to electric propulsion in small aircraft.
MCAM-CommAviation-AviationSystems

Aviation Systems

Our lightweight and corrosion-resistant Thermoplastic materials are already being used in hydraulic actuation around valves, seals and backup rings and to replace metal pipes. While high pressure systems such as fly by wire, HVAC, aeration cooling/heating and fluid management all benefit from advanced materials replacing traditional metal parts.
MCAM-CommAviation-Structures

Structures

Our expert teams have been involved in the early development of thermoplastic and thermoset carbon composite technology for structural applications that require high strength impact resistance and prevention of moisture absorption. In addition, within structures where corrosion is a concern, advanced materials can be used to replace metal parts.

Reducing costs and emissions through material expertise

CASE STUDY

Reducing costs and emissions through material expertise

 A complex challenge that required a simplified solution

Our experts produced a self-lubricating plastic solution that not only delivered to our customer’s needs, but also resulted in a lighter plane with a lower risk of failure and reduced maintenance requirements. This in turn led to better fuel efficiency and reduced CO₂ emissions, which helped create a more sustainable aircraft.
