With a focus on aerodynamic efficiency, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions offers a range of standard and customized designs developed for reliable service and efficient assembly and maintenance. Our range includes seals for wing and moving surfaces including complex aerodynamic shrouds for hydraulic jacks, extrusions and fabricated seals for doors and hatches, interior couplings, inflatable cockpit canopy seals and fabricated swing-wing fuselage fairings.[No text in field]

Access Panels

Access Panels

Access Panels typically include Trailing Edge panels and Wing-to-Fuse panels. These require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can provide the support required to ensure each application is fully reviewed and an appropriate is solution provided. Our application engineers are ready to assist with a review of your project.

Typical Operating Environment

Access Panels are exposed to both high speed and cold air that can reach as low as -50ºC / -58ºF.

Recommended Products
Airframe Seal

Canopies

Aircraft Canopies

Sealing solutions for canopies include both Canopy Seals and Windscreen Inflatable Seals manufactured to suit individual canopy sizes. These require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air. The solutions often are made from silicone rubber. EMI shielding and anti-static properties can also be incorporated depending upon your application needs.

Typical Operating Environment
Aircraft canopies can be exposed to speeds as high as Mach 2 and cold air that may reach as low as -50ºC / -58ºF. Canopies are pressurized, and the products used to properly seal them are critical.

Doors

Aircraft Doors

Aircraft doors may include Hatch Door Seals or Refueling Seals. These require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Aircraft doors are exposed to high speed and cold air that can reach as low as -50ºC / -58ºF. Additionally, door seals must protect against fuel splashes.

Fairings Seals

Fairings Seals

Farings Seals, for example for the Nose Cone, require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Fairings are exposed to cold air as low as -50ºC / -58ºF.

Fire Seals

Fire Seals

Fire Seals are used on most engine applications. Typically, custom elastomer products must be designed for each unique application to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Fire seals are exposed to both hot and cold air. Temperatures may range from as low as -50ºC / -58ºF to as high as +275ºC / +527ºF.

Flight Surfaces

Flight Surfaces

Solutions provided by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions for flight surfaces include the leading-edge Surface and Flap Hinge Fairing Seals. These are custom-designed elastomer products that ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Flight surfaces must endure high speed and cold air that can reach as low as -50ºC / -58ºF.

Interiors

Aircraft Interiors

Areas in which Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can provide solutions on the aircraft interior include galley extrusions and window reveals. These are custom-designed elastomer products capable of meeting your particular design needs.

Typical Operating Environment
Products provided for the interior of an aircraft must be flame retardant as well as meet the desired aesthetic design qualities.

Windows Applications

Aircraft Windows Applications

Solutions which Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can provide for window applications in an aircraft include Cabin and Cockpit Window Seals. These require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Products used in aircraft window applications are exposed to a pressurized cabin and must have a high tear strength.

Wing Slots Seals

Wing Slots Seals

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions can provide solutions for wing slot applications, which include both Sweep Wing Seals and Wing-to-Fuse. These require custom-designed elastomer products to ensure ideal sealing effectiveness and safety in the air.

Typical Operating Environment
Wing slots are exposed to high speed, cold air and friction during flight. The wing slot seals designed for these applications must be able to meet all requirements.
