Complex Load Introduction Elements, Brackets, Hinges and Fittings. Up to now only skin panels or profiles have been produced using thermoplastic composites. Cross Composite goes a step further, providing a solutions to replace metallic housings, brackets, load elements, hinges and fittings by lighter thermoplastic composites parts. Cross Composite offers the best solution for small and complex load introduction elements in the next generation airframes for aircrafts, UAV’s and helicopters. Thermoplastics – Predestined Aerospace Materials. Thermoplastic composites are perfect for aerospace applications thanks to their FST (fire, smoke and toxiticy) performance, their corrosion stability and their excellent impact properties. Replacing aluminium parts through thermoplastic composites will avoid to make cost-intensive anti-galvanic corrosion precautions, giving major cost and weight advantages compared to titanium and steel parts.
