Plastics For Aerospace

Aerospace

Plastics are used in numerous aerospace applications to improve safety, reduce costs, save fuel and improve passenger comfort. Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture transport, fabricate, install maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding aerospace applications.
