Engineered Materials (Dexmet Corporation) offers MicroGrid® precision expanded and perforated metal foils to manufacturers of composite materials for lightning strike protection and shielding. MicroGrid® products are designed for aerospace and wind power applications.
MicroGrid® is a thin, open-area material applied to the top adhesive layer of the composite and is capable of achieving the critical conductivity required to dissipate a destructive lightning strike, protecting the carbon fiber layer below.
Engineered Materials ultrathin meshes are essential for extending the life of carbon fiber composite aircraft, wind blades and their components. Engineered Materials MicroGrid® open-area products can also be incorporated into the composite for protection against EMI/RFI and ESD. To learn more click here.
