Aerospace customers require materials to survive in some of the most demanding environmental conditions. MAST Technologies recommends using nitrile, Viton, or fluoroelastomer based materials for most low temperature applications. Nitrile based elastomers offer resistance to common aerospace fluids including fuels and oils, as well as offer good abrasion resistance and mechanical strength. For more information on elastomer selection, please visit our Elastomer Selection Chart.
MAST Technologies also offers a suite of high temperature materials for aerospace applications. Aero thermal heating on leading edges can generate extreme temperatures for materials, and MAST has just the solution. For more information on high temperature materials, contact a MAST engineering representative.
Aerospace systems are becoming increasingly complex with antenna systems transmitting data across many different frequency bands. MAST Technologies lightweight reticulated foam absorbers are commonly used to reduce antenna side and back lobes or even to prevent antenna cross-talk. MAST reticulated foam absorbers are effective at attenuating energy from 1 to 40 GHz, and some even higher.
