Goodrich looks to Ogden for F-35 landing gear coatings

  • 14-Jan-2009 08:35 EST

Goodrich selected the U.S. Air Force's Ogden Air Logistics Center (OO-ALC) at Hill AFB, UT, to provide specialty coatings on landing gear for the F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft. The OO-ALC will apply high-velocity oxygenated fuel (HVOF) thermal spray coating on Goodrich landing gear components produced for the F-35. The initial agreement runs through May and covers requirements for five landing gear shipsets of the carrier variant F-35. HVOF coating technology is increasingly being used in demanding aerospace applications such as landing gears because it provides an alternative to hard chrome plating. Goodrich, along with the F-35 integrated product team, worked closely with OO-ALC on technical, quality, and program elements to bring the depot's HVOF process online in a production environment.
