The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who… looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space… on the infinite highway of air. -Wilbur Wright
High performance and critical applications require very specific and unique combination of properties. Working in the aviation and aerospace sector, we provide and continually offer safe and reliable materials that meet or exceed customer and regulatory authority requirements, on time and at a reasonable cost.
The replacement of aluminum and steel with thermoplastics allows manufacturing of light aircraft, up to ten times lighter than metal with materials such as PEEK, PPSU, PEI and other polymer materials we offer. Many thermoplastics have better fatigue properties than metal, and they tolerate larger deflections without deforming.
Our high-performance thermoplastics meet more stringent flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST) standards due to their inherent flame resistance or, in some cases, flame retardancy. Ask a Texco sales rep for more information.
