Description of UltraConductive Coating
UltraConductive™ coating is a two-component epoxy coating designed as a single-layer spray coating for Zone 2A lightning strike protection (LSP) and surfacing of composite parts on aircraft. The coating is designed for direct spray application to the tool surface, precoated with release agent.
Features and benefits:
- Weight Savings: at 140 g/m², coating offers a 35-55 % direct weight savings over most conventional expanded copper foil products.
- Process Compatible: enables process automation – cures during composite cure cycle.
- Convenient: reduces material and labor costs by requiring fewer surface materials – compatible with existing primers and topcoats.
- Improves safety: eliminates unnecessary layers of dielectric materials used above conventional lightning strike protection to correct surface imperfections.
