HIGH-PERFORMANCE FABRICS FOR AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS
The aerospace industry is a market that is driven by demand for greater aircraft performance and commercial return. Mid-Mountain’s products can help the industry to innovate and enhance overall fabric performance, application, and manufacturing. Broad manufacturing capabilities and vertical integration allow Mid-Mountain to provide high quality, engineered thermal barriers and seals to meet those demands, and enhance both performance and safety on aircraft.
Why High-Performance Fabrics from Mid-Mountain?
Our core technologies and materials science knowledge are frequently used to create new high-performance fabrics for aerospace safety and process-specific applications. This has led to revolutionary breakthroughs in flexible industrial coated fabrics and high-performance fabrics that are used for pallet and cargo covers, thermal barriers and protective seals.
Many of our standard coated fabrics used in aerospace products are manufactured in accordance with ATSM, FAR, BMS, and MIL specifications.
We are Highly Experienced
Mid-Mountain has helped the world’s leading aerospace companies achieve competitive advantage and increased safety with the use of our high-performance fabrics. Product development is a high priority for us and we work closely with our customers to address the needs of their application, using raw materials tailored to the best possible outcome.
Our area of focus for aviation applications continues to be on the development of new materials, the improvement of current industrial material properties, and the application of current materials in new and novel structures.
Which High-Performance Fabrics are Suitable for Your Application?
Armatex® Silicone/Intumescent Coated Fabrics – these fabrics are coated with a protective substance activated by a heat-generating chemical reaction. The heat causes the particles to swell and create an insulating layer on a surface. Intumescents expand substantially in high temperatures such as in fires. This means that these fabrics are suitable for fire protection, making them an excellent choice for cargo and pallet covers as well as onboard fire retardant fabrics.
ARMATEX® SF 37 JETSTAR – this product has been specifically designed for use in passenger boarding bridges. The material is well-suited to use in the flexible closure assemblies, being made from medium-weight fiberglass fabric and coated with a silicone rubber compound. ARMATEX SF 37 Jetstar is manufactured to meet or exceed the requirements of NFPA specifications 255 and 701, and is classified as “Class A” per NFPA 101, Life Safety Code.
ARMATEX® NF 14 CARGO TEX – this high-performance fabric is made from high-strength woven fiberglass with a polymer coating. The fiberglass fabric is extremely strong and passes the FAA specification for radiant panel flammability. This means it is well suited to use in cargo holds, enhancing passenger safety and mitigating risks of sudden fires.
