H.C. Starck will display its extensive product portfolio for applications in the defense and aerospace industries at the 2011 Paris Air Show to be conducted from 20 to 26 June, 2011.
H.C. Starck offers ceramic and refractory materials for intricate aerospace components, ranging from rocket nozzles to warheads and airframes to engines. The company offers strong materials that can tolerate adverse thermal and mechanical stress encountered in aircraft turbine engines. The company supplies refractory metal dies to mold the accurate fan assemblies as well as superior performance powders to apply as coatings for improved operating life.
The thermal-spray coating of thick insulation layers over turbine blades reduces consumption of fuel, decreases backflow and maximizes the performance of engine, thus assuring engine safety. H.C. Starck produces tungsten alloy-based balance weights for rudder section, elevators and ailerons of aircraft, cockpit instrumentation and helicopter rotor blades.
H.C. Starck’s tantalum, molybdenum and tungsten-made products offer design help and build-to-print parts for major warhead producers. The company offers refractory products to direct propulsion via nozzles and vanes and various specialty compounds for solid rocket motors to improve thrust. The company runs a state-of-the-art forging and extrusion facility to produce huge intricate shapes from alloys and specialty metals such as niobium, tantalum, molybdenum, nickel, titanium and other advanced materials for vital airplane structural components.
