Fabric & Rubber Aircraft Seals
Seal Science is a complete engineering and manufacturing resource for the development and supply of a wide range of fabric and rubber seals for aerodynamic aircraft seals. These seals are used on airframes, wings, rudders, doors, windows, and access panels in military, commercial, business, light planes and other airborne crafts such as missiles, ordnance, drones, decoys and satellites. Our fabric and rubber seals maintain aerodynamic, electronic wave, vibration and moisture sealing requirements.
We are qualified to many Aerospace Prime specifications and were recently awarded Lockheed Martin’s Supplier of the Year in 2015. We are also ISO9001:2008 and AS9100C certified.
Materials and Fabric and Composite Reinforcements:
SSI offers a complete design capability for seals and gaskets made from:
- Silicone and Silicone/Fabric compositions
- Organic elastomers and fabric reinforced compositions
- Radar-Absorbing Materials (RAM)
- Conductive elastomers and reinforced conductive fabric
- Elastomer/Plastic/Metallic bonding
Many types of reinforcements are available to combine with base materials to add to the durability, friction resistance, endurance, and electronic properties of the base.
- Wire Mesh
Typical Aircraft Applications
- Wing Panels
- Aerodynamic Surfaces
- Gap Seals
- Fire Barriers
- Engine Seals
Design Engineering and Development
Seal Science engineers will work closely with you to define the parameters affecting performance, longevity, and compatibility for your application. For collaborative design efforts we use SolidWorks, CATIA, and Abaqus to assist us in model making, rapid prototyping and design. Exotic material formulation and special compositions that include multi-component/odd-shaped configurations result in innovative solutions that solve many problems.
