Composite Surfacing and Lightning Strike Protection

Surfacing films are designed to improve the surface quality of honeycomb stiffened composite parts.

They also provide a barrier for dissimilar materials, decrease surface preparation time and provide protection of structural fibers. But this is not all: Laminated films composed of a surfacing film and a conductive metal foil protect the composite structure from damage caused by lightning strikes.

Participants will learn:

  • Surfacing films for aircrafts
  • High thermal fatigue resistance
  • Lightning strike protection
  • Process labor reduction
  • Out of Autoclave Solutions
