The aerospace/aviation industry consists of many different areas: the aircraft itself (e.g. airplane, helicopter or drone/UAV), the airport surroundings including ground support (GSE) as well as space technology. Here, the various segments have different requirements. Low weight, long service life, quiet operation and great robustness are among the most important of those requirements, and our motion plastics meet them. They also comply with the FAR 25.853 fire protection standard. Our wide range of products offers cost-effective solutions in all segments – always in keeping with our motto.
