Durability and low weight are of significant importance to aircraft and aerospace manufactures, so advanced composites are high up the list when it comes to selecting construction materials. This demanding industry was one of the first to use composite materials for an ever increasing range of applications, and remains at the technological forefront of composite development.
One of Gurit's primary product categories for this sector is prepreg, which is an engineered material combining fibres and resin matrices in an easy-to-apply material. These aerospace-qualified materials are highly suitable for many interior and structural applications, demonstrating a unique combination of properties combining excellent mechanical performance and the fulfilment of the highest international JAR/FAR fire protection regulations regarding fire, smoke, toxicity (FST) and heat release.
With its worldwide network of sales teams and two dedicated aerospace material production sites, Gurit is well positioned to serve a truly global customer base in the aircraft and space industry.
