Description of UltraConductive Film
UltraConductive™ film provides zone 1A and zone 2A lightning strike protection (LSP) on composite aircraft panels. It is designed to reduce aircraft weight by replacing the combination of expanded metal foil, surfacing film, and isolation ply typically used in conventional lightning strike protection systems.
Features and benefits:
- Weight Savings: offers a 35-55 % direct weight savings over most conventional expanded copper foil surfacing films.
- Process compatible: fits into current manufacturing processes- cures during composite cure cycle.
- Convenient: reduces material and labor costs by requiring fewer surface materials- compatible with standard mold release agents, primers and topcoats.
- Improves appearance: offers smooth finish appearance by reducing the use of primers and paint to correct poor surface finish.
