Lightening Strike Technologies
Lightning Strike Technologies
Our company is known internationally, especially for work in the development of lightning strike protection for aircraft and other composite-based structures. Our clients include most of the world's major airlines and aerospace equipment manufacturers, as well as a wide range of others in fields such as utilities, telecommunications, and commercial electronics. Our team at Dexmet engineers our materials to exceed lightning protection standards and verification test methods.
MicroGrid's single unit structure is superior to woven material in that it won't unravel or have lose strands that become problematic during processing into a pre-preg material or when conducting a dry lay-up. The homogenous design also ensures uncompromised conductivity between strands when forming the material to a variety of shapes and contours and provides a smooth surface on the end product. MicroGrid's biggest advantage is Dexmet's ability to tightly control the manufacturing process to meet a specific weight, open area, and conductivity requirement. This allows Engineers the options of varying materials according to specific strike zones on the" Turbine Blades & Generator Nacelles "minimizing the overall weight. Our common materials have the ability to withstand a Zone 1A strike of 200,000 amps."
Our company is known internationally, especially for work in the development of lightning strike protection for aircraft and other composite-based structures. More recently, Dexmet Lightning Strike materials have been used to protect residential gas lines, marine and land-based masts, and other high value structures. Dexmet can provide a wide variety of metals, geometries, and secondary treatments to exacting specifications to meet your needs.
