Truly versatile Boron Nitride from Saint-Gobain finds many uses in the Aerospace and Aviation industry. Amongst many other applications, Boron Nitride is used in thermal spray coatings in the turbine engines as wear and erosion resistant coatings and thermal barriers, dynamic friction materials in brake pads, as well as thermal management fillers in high-performance plastic components.
Combat® Boron Nitride powder agglomerates is combined with metal alloy combinations (Al-Ni-Cr-Si-Fe-Si) and binding resins and thermally sprayed onto metal substrates to form coatings for abradable seals or to increase wear properties of industrial tool surfaces.
Every extra pound a plane weighs costs additional dollars to move it. It is not surprising that over the last couple of decades, plastic components have replaced other heavier materials like alumina in the aerospace and aviation industry. One of requirements of many components is high thermal conductivity and thermal stability. Saint-Gobain's CarboTherm™ Thermal Management fillers, with their combination of unique properties, are the ideal functional fillers in thermally conductive high performance and engineering plastics for a variety of aerospace applications such as sensor plates, attenuation tubes, pulleys, and more.
