Aerospace- and aircraft industry

The microporous material WDS® makes it possible for the user to achieve the slim and light construction design which is necessary in the aerospace and aircraft industries. WDS® creates the perfect connection between high thermal insulation and low weight. Temperatures of up to 1100°C are effectively insulated. In addition, this exceptional material has fire-protection characteristics.

WDS® is used, for example, as part of the engine insulation in civilian aviation, as well as in rocket engines, in the so-called black boxes, in other exhaust systems and as part of high efficiency fire protection systems.

WDS® was used successfully as insulation for the highly sensitive measuring instruments in the Netlander for the ESA Mars expedition. Here the outstanding workability of our WDS® proved itself alongside the excellent insulation characteristics.
