Most Popular Aerospace Plastic Components

Aerospace plastic components
The use of aerospace plastic components has quadrupled since 1970, thanks in large part to their strength-to-weight ratio. Since aerospace plastics provide the same strength as metal at a fraction of the weight, aerospace engineers could convert large portions of aerostructure from metal to plastic to significantly reduce an aircraft’s weight without compromising strength. Reduction in overall weight directly impacts a plane’s performance and efficiency, with substantial savings in fuel and maintenance repair costs. Improved aircraft performance and reduced fuel costs are key factors in the aerospace industry, and the unique properties of aerospace plastic components allow them to deliver on both.
