airforce / insulating systems

Insulating systems and insulation materials are paramount for the safety of military aircrafts as they operate at above subsonic speeds, and experience high thermal loads and acoustic vibrations.

As an example, heat shields and thermal blankets protect the military or commercial aircrafts from thermal stresses, and are made of materials such as titanium and plastic composites.

Acoustic dampeners are used for reducing noise levels and other forms of mechanical vibrations. Other forms of vibration dampeners include Radar reflecting materials and instruments used in stealth aircrafts such as B2 stealth bomber and F-117.

All insulating materials are in form of blankets and at least 6-12 inches thick. Confer, latex, filter, polyurethane, polypropylene and polystyrene foams, etc. are a few other materials used in fabricating insulating materials.

We are building a list of manufacturers for this category.
