Adhesives are quickly replacing metal fasteners and other metal joining solutions in military and aerospace applications, even as plastics and composite materials replace metal.

Plastics and composites provide the strength and durability required in these industries while also providing distinct advantages in weight and cost reduction.

In aircraft exteriors, thin-film bonding systems are used in applications such as bonding stainless steel anti-chafing strips to aluminum wing flaps. The surface protection strips prevent abrasion between the flap and the underside of the wing during deployment of the flaps for takeoffs and landings. Adhesive transfer tapes are well-suited for this application due to their bond durability and resistance to environmental extremes.

EIS can help you select your bonding and adhesive solutions to apply to a light weight applications in the aerospace and defense market.
