Whether for a super-jumbo commercial jet or a single-engine piston model, fluids, ranging from highly refined propulsion fuels to viscose lubricating greases and oils, are an aircraft’s life blood. But fluids are at risk of loss due to leakage. For aerospace seal manufacturers, that presents a dual engineering challenge—more robust containment and longer on-wing life. New technology applications are moving that along. Among them is carbon graphite, a material that has been ...
