Servicing the Aerospace Industry since 1956

The following are a few of Lamart's Noteworthy Aerospace Accomplishments:

  • Developed APK®, the lightest weight thermal & acoustic insulation covering film that passes the radiant panel test - FAR 25.856(a) (CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS)
  • First to develop a light weight polyimide thermal & acoustic insulation covering film
  • First to receive a letter of compliance from the FAA for radiant panel certification testing of insulation covering films
  • Developed laminated material for NASA, to be used to make airships for communications platforms for both earth based and extraterrestrial programs.
  • Developed a radiation resistant heat reflector for weather satellites
  • Worked with NASA to develop a heat reflective component in America's first space suit
  • Developed a laminated material used in rescue balloons that has helped save hundreds of servicemen from behind enemy lines

Lamart manufactures APK®(PEKK),PEEK, PVF, polyimide, and polyester covering films.  The APK®, PEEK, PVF and polymide films pass FAR 25.856(a) (CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO RULE ON FAA SITE)

Lamart's films have proven to be easy to use during the blanket fabrication process, and are exceptional in the areas of:

  • Heat Sealing and Stitching
  • Thread Adhesion
  • Puncture Resistance
  • Permeance

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE

Lamart's 213M is an aluminum foil tape coated with a solvent resistant pressure sensitive adhesive.  It is used to mask sensitive parts during the aircraft paint stripping process.  CLICK HERE for details about paint stripping masking tape.

SPACE SYSTEMS

Lamart has supplied a number of high performance laminated and coated materials to the aerospace industry, e.g., a radiation resistant heat reflector for weather satellites and a heat reflective component used in America's first space suit.

More recently, Lamart was chosen to develop a low permeation construction envelope material for an aerobot vehicle that is being designed for a mission to Titan, a moon of Saturn.

Lamart can help you design and manufacture the flexible substrates that you need, whether your project requires a heat reflective or low permeation construction, or any type of high performance, engineered material.
