MCAM Duratron® CU60 PBI Nacelles Wear Pad

Aerospace Duratron CU60 PBI Nacelles Wear Pad Challenge Avoid abrasion of the metal engine housing caused by opposing expansion and contraction requirements due to extreme temperature differences between engine and nacelle housing. The nacelle houses the propulsion unit and engine. Within this structure there is a requirement to compensate the differential expansion rate of the engine as it heats up and the nacelle as it is cooled by airflow. This is achieved by the use of static wear pads that are fixed at certain locations within the nacelle structure. The propulsion unit is then fixed in one area but allowed to expand against these wear pads in other areas. The wear pad material needs to be extremely hard wearing non-abrasive to contact surfaces withstand vibrations and excursions to high temperatures for short periods during reverse thruster operations. Nacelle Wear Pad Key Requirements Avoid abrasion of the contact surface Excellent wear and frictional behavior Effective operation from 40 to 300 C -22 to 572 F Retention of mechanical properties for service life Low coefficient of linear thermal expansion Customer Benefits Duratron CU60 PBI polymer wear pads protect expensive metallic or composite components from wear even at high temperatures of more than 350 C 625 F the material maintains its excellent wear properties Good shock and vibration absorbing properties of Duratron CU60 PBI help reduce noise Duratron CU60 PBI noticeably extends service life between replacements compared to softer materials Standard fasteners can be used for retention Our wear pads optimize the clearance between engine and housing and considerably improve the effectiveness of the engine MCAMconnect Our global MRP system controls the process from resin to finished part thus simplifying material certification and lot traceability Distributed by 450 450 500 310 250 310 250 250 310 310 250 270 250 270 250 240 240 -20 -20 -20 -50 -50 -20 Ke
