Material Selection for Propulsion Applications

Propulsion applications present the most demanding of aircraft environments.

Engines, nacelles and auxiliary power units experience temperature extremes, require long-term durability and undergo mechanical and acoustic fatigue. Henkel has developed a family of products to meet these extreme demands including:

  • Surface treatments for metals and impregnated peel plies for composite surface preparation.
  • Film adhesives capable of reticulation in honeycomb sandwich applications.
  • Paste adhesives and potting compounds for high temperature service.
  • Core splice materials for use with metal and organic honeycombs.
  • Surfacing and lightning strike films for composite structures.
  • Abradable seals to improve engine efficiency.
