aerospaceNorplex-Micarta materials provide excellent thermal insulation and mechanical strength, and are certified to meet the most challenging aerospace technology specifications. From braking systems, to window frames,
to structural elements, Norplex-Micarta is the preferred high performance composites manufacturer for OEMs and fabricators around the world.

Norplex-Micarta provides a variety of high performance thermoset composite materials in sheet, tube, rod, and pre-preg forms, and has the ability to manufacture compression molded parts. These composites provide excellent mechanical strength, structural support, and durability at frigid temperatures while in flight at 35,000 feet and from the extreme heat produced by braking an aircraft after landing.

Each manufactured component can withstand the initial impact force of installation, as well as the repeated stress of inspections and repairs. They exhibit excellent compressive, shear, tensile, and flexural strength to withstand the rigors of take-off, flight, and landing operations.

These lightweight, cost effective thermoset composite materials are used to successfully enhance the performance of commercial aircraft. Norplex-Micarta materials also offer ease of handling, which can result in substantial savings in fabrication and assembly operations without sacrificing performance.

Norplex also offers materials commonly used on space missions, such as thermal and electrical rigid insulation materials. Materials have been tested to NASA standards for outgassing requirements.
