A single-skin flexible fuel bladder material from GKN Aerospace offers crash resistance and puncture tolerance. The product was developed as part of an initiative to reduce and remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from fuel tank manufacturing processes. The material is manufactured from a thermoplastic polymer rather than traditional nitrile rubber and incorporates the crash resistant textile within it. It also contains an integrated fuel barrier to provide the same level of fuel tolerance exhibited by traditional tanks. This means the crash resistant layer is not applied using adhesives and no final lacquer coating is required, significantly reducing VOC solvent use.
