Greater durability, more robust corrosion resistance, less maintenance-intensive, lighter weight: These are among the phrases that will be increasingly heard to describe the emerging trends in aircraft wheel design and protection. To achieve those goals, wheel OEMs are focusing on new alloys and corrosion-inhibiting coating, as well as fewer parts. Aircraft wheels take a beating, especially from multiple corrosive elements, primarily carbon dust generated by the action of carbon brakes, ...
