Aerospace

The airline industry is converting to planes and technologies that conserve energy and are more eco-friendly, and fiberglass is an ideal solution. The weight-to-strength ratio, impact and corrosion resistance, and non-flammable properties of fiberglass make it suitable for reinforcing aircraft laminates, luggage bins and other composite structures in the aerospace industry. Newer commercial aircrafts, such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner, use lightweight coposites, while older planes are replacing traditional materials with lighter fiberglass composites. 

Applications:

  • Luggage bins
  • Interior paneling and flooring
  • Structural parts
  • Fuel tanks
  • Helicopter blades
  • Cargo liners
