Coatings for airframe components

Common structural materials in the aerospace industry (titanium, aluminum alloys, stainless steels and Inconel)  are prone to galling, which can lead to adverse surface effects in contact areas. The related phenomenon of fretting wear can cause underperformance or even failure of critical components. IHI Ionbond offers a comprehensive range of Tribobond coatings for effective protection against fretting, galling and other aircraft-specific mechanical surface damages.

Typical components include:

  • Engine mounts
  • Spherical bearings
  • Rod ends
  • Fasteners
  • Actuator pistons/rods
