W. L. Gore & Associates’ Gore Skyflex Aerospace Materials provide improved protection against chafing and abrasion in both rotary and fixed wing aircraft surfaces. Gore Skyflex Aerospace Materials for anti-chafe applications help minimize vibration force and reduce the abrasive effects of foreign debris between surfaces in applications such as access panels, fuel bladders, tail booms, and transmission panels, where mechanical wear from vibration can cause small particles to become trapped between the interfaces, resulting in chafing, pitting, and scoring. Gore’s soft durable materials are chemically inert and resistant to aircraft fluids, thus minimizing potential corrosive effects. The firm’s materials for edge protection are abrasion resistant and engineered to prevent abrasion and cut-through damage from composite floorboard edges and reduce the likelihood of corrosion. More durable than fiberglass tapes, these materials protect edges by isolating carbon and other components that are galvanically dissimilar.
