For over two decades, Dexmet Corporation has been working with aircraft designers developing precision expanded MicroGrid® expanded thin metal foils for lightning strike protection on carbon fiber composite aircraft and its components. Benefiting from the development work done in the aircraft industry, Wind Blade Manufacturers realize the importance of having the proper lightning strike protection for larger carbon fiber blades and incorporating Dexmet materials into their designs. Find out more.

Dexmet MicroGrid® materials are thin, open area products applied to the top adhesive layer of the composite and are capable of achieving the critical conductivity required to dissipate a destructive lightning strike, protecting the carbon fiber layer below.

Dexmet ultrathin meshes are essential at extending the life of carbon fiber composite aircraft, wind blades and their components. Dexmet MicroGrid® Materials can also be incorporated into the composite for protection against EMI/RFI and ESD.
