Carpenter Technology to supply landing gear alloy to Goodrich for next ten years

Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS) has signed a ten-year agreement with Goodrich Landing Gear, a Goodrich Corporation business, for the supply of AerMet® 100 alloy for use in military aircraft landing gear components for the F/A-18 Hornet and the F-35 Lightening II (Joint Strike Fighter). The agreement will run through 2020.

Developed by Carpenter to serve critical U.S. Navy landing gear needs, AerMet® 100 replaces the 300M alloy, and has the best combination of strength, toughness, and stress corrosion cracking resistance of any commercially available material.

Carpenter continues to be at the forefront in the development of high-strength, high-toughness alloys offering significant advantages for aerospace structural applications. Other alloys include AerMet® 340, and stainless steel high-strength, high-toughness alloys such as Custom 465® and Custom 475®.
