Aerospace & Composites
We offer a wide range of expanded metal mesh products to companies operating in the aerospace industry – which in many instances require lightweight materials for use in components, and precision solutions which can be shaped for specialist use.
Our design and manufacturing expertise means that we can fully design and customise a mesh specification to a customer’s needs, from concept to full production.
Lightning Strike Protection
Manufactured from just one piece of material, the homogenous design of expanded metal provides an extremely effective means to dissipate lightning strikes within aircraft applications and other articles at risk, such as wind turbine blades.
As composite materials continue to increase in popularity, so does expanded metal as a choice of substrate. Providing a strong, yet lightweight substrate within composite materials, a carefully selected expanded metal can influence malleability and electrical conductivity.
Up To 80% Lighter and Stronger
Due to its unique manufacturing process, expanded metal can weigh less than 80% than the raw material from which it came, providing you with an immediate weight saving on existing components. Not only that, tests demonstrate that expanded metal also benefits from improve strength to weight ratio thanks to its inherent design.
