For years, Von Roll products are approved and flying. Von Roll has offered in the past decades the possibility to make very lightweight composite parts for aircrafts, especially for interior sandwich panels and electrical cabinets but also has offered a wide range of products suitable for electrical components.
More recently, Von Roll has been working on new technologies, to deliver today key benefits to our customers, especially for Interior cabin applications.
Over the years VonRoll has developed products and technologies that are applicable to different aircraft parts.
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.
VonRoll composite materials are suited for a wide variety of applications in an airplane. Selected Von Roll products can deliver structural and flame-retardant characteristics, while still satisfying the demand for high service temperatures.
For structural parts VonRoll can offer the possibility to deliver composite semi-finished and machined components according to customized shapes and dimensions. The following section lists a range of VonRoll products that can find application for secondary composite parts and components.
Our composite materials are suited for the manufacture of aircraft interior equipment and parts such as cabin and galley elements, trolley housings etc.
Product portfolio includes FAA qualified parts such as:
A range of materials can be used to make laminates and machined parts
In the recent years Von Roll has been working on new technologies, to deliver today key benefits to our customers including light-weight material solutions, reduced part cost manufacturing, easy handling storage and transportation.
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.
The aircraft industry looks very active to a new generation of fully electrical planes that would need to carry very heavy batteries in order to even approach the performance of current airliners.
VonRoll offers various products that are suitable to satisfy the challenge requirements of modern batteries assembly in terms of safety, 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.
