3M partnered with Aviation Week Network to present: Advancements in Lightning Strike Protection Technologies for Composite Aircraft Structures.
On February 25th we hosted an engaging presentation with a live question and answer session exploring the past, present, and future of LSP materials for aircraft production, and how the use of new materials and processes can help solve for the biggest challenges facing manufacturers in the post-COVID-19 era.
Attendees learned about the evolution of LSP materials for primary and secondary aircraft structures and how metal foil and adhesive surfacing film combinations can be tailored to meet today's processing, quality, and weight reduction targets. We also discussed new LSP material technology advancements including: Automatic Fiber Placement (AFP), nano fibers, sprayable solutions, and novel conductor concepts.
