Aerospace Thermal Barriers | Life Rafts and Helicopter Floats | Trelleborg Engineered Coated Fabrics (ECF)

Durable & Lightweight Aerospace Coated Fabrics

As the demand for air travel continues to rise, so does Trelleborg’s quest to continuously identify polymer-coated material solutions that make aircraft safer, lighter and more efficient.
Our coated fabrics meet strict airspace industry standards for strength-to-weight ratio, dependability and abrasion resistance. We understand the unique challenges of manufacturing materials and meeting regulatory requirements for aerospace applications including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Defense (DoD), European Space Agency (ESA), Technical Standard Order (TSO) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Flexible Thermal Protection for Extreme Environments

ECF Rocket ThermalBarrier Aerospace

Trelleborg’s new non-woven coating capabilities can be applied to barrier applications across multiple industries.

Applications include thermal protection and heat shields for outer space, seat fire-blocking, fuselage burn-through protection, fire resistant composite materials, cargo liners, thermal acoustic insulation, moisture control, and more.
