Case Study: Torlon PAI’s Thermal Isolation, High Strength Keys to Weight-Saving Innovation in Composite Aircraft’s Hydraulic System

The drive for more fuel efficient, comfortable, higher capacity commercial airplanes has led to the increasing use of carbon fiber composites in aircraft structures. Compared to metallic materials, they provide equivalent or enhanced structural strength within their service temperature ranges, offer far more design versatility, and deliver the added benefit of fuel-efficient weight reduction which can be leveraged to increase payload capacity. In fact, carbon-fiber composite materials have proven their performance and weight-saving advantages so successfully that they now make up approximately 50% of the weight of most modern commercial aircraft.
