Thanks to the wide range of possible combinations of special resin formulations and selected reinforcing materials, composites can be used for many aviation applications, such as in aircraft components. The areas of the aircraft body shown in the illustration are just a few examples among many.
Composites in the aviation industry meet the vital requirement of reducing weight while remaining highly functional.
Another indispensable property of the Von Roll composites used here is their fire resistance – they are flame-retardant andlow-fuming – which can only be achieved by choosing the ideal combination of raw materials.
As requirements differ depending on how the materials are used in the aircraft, a wide variety of composites (based on glass orcarbon fiber) are available to achieve the required properties as successfully as possible.
Composite materials are suited for a wide variety of applications in an airplane due to their outstanding properties such as reduced weight while remaining highly functional and flame-retardant. Composites also other fulfill requirements, for example the protective aspect in wall elements.
The insulation systems for low-voltage applications consist of the following materials:
*These products are not visible in the picture.
Most of these low-voltage products are listed under different UL thermal classes.
Switchboards and switchgears are of major importance in terms of substation equipment. Von Roll is the leader in electrical insulation systems and provides materials of high quality to support current and voltage fluctuations in power network systems.
Batteries for grid energy storage require a high degree of operating safety. That calls for material properties, such as fire resistance, flame retardance, thermal insulation, electrical insulation and chemical stability. Our products possess all of these properties and even prevent thermal runaway and short circuits. Moreover, they enable more efficient battery systems and a highly reliable design for cost-effective, automated manufacturing.
