Protective covers are part of the fundamental tools for the protection and the maintenance of aircrafts, considering the value of assets like the engines and the propellers.
Flexible textile covers are used during the assembling process by the airlines and the MROs, for the transport and the storage of aircraft parts.
REQUIREMENTS FOR AIRCRAFT COVER FABRICS
Fabric used for these covers needs to meet the following requirements:
- Fire resistant : FAR25 is the main standard used in the aircraft market.
- Chemical resistant : Aggressive oils and fluids are used in aeronautic field.
- Mechanical resistant : Constraints during transport and assembly process can be tough.
- Soft contact : Surfaces can be very fragile (canopies, inlet…). The fabric needs to be soft on one side to protect those surfaces.
Needs for covers in the aircraft industry are numerous.
