Aerospace Cables And Materials Target Civil Aircraft Applications

PLEINFELD, GERMANY --- W. L. Gore & Associates, (Gore) will be exhibiting its high-performance aerospace products for civil aircraft applications at the 2017 AIX (Aircraft Interiors Expo) in Hamburg, Germany on 4-6 April in Booth #2D60. Gore representatives will showcase a host of products that are scalable, easy to deploy and improve all aspects of performance. The Gore portfolio of fiber optics, USB and HDMI solutions meet the civil aerospace industry’s ever-increasing desire for high speed data transfer.

GORE® Aerospace Fiber Optic Cables not only meet ARINC 802 IEEE Standards for performance and quality assurance, but also resist crushing, kinking and abrasion through a unique dual buffering system that makes initial routing easier. These cables also deliver reliable signal transmission over longer distances in wide temperature ranges.

GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables provide reliable high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits. They support power management from 9-32V systems and carry more data over distances greater than 5 meters to ensure faster IFE content uploads and downloads.

GORE® Aerospace HDMI 2.0 Cables provide excellent signal integrity with stable performance over longer distances, minimizing the need for additional signal amplification. These smaller, high-density cable bundles improve installation due to a tighter bend radius that makes them easier to route in confined spaces.

GORE® Microwave Sealed Airframe Assemblies are vapor-sealed to provide durable protection against the ingress of water vapor, jet fuel and other contaminants. Gore’s assemblies maintain low insertion loss, return loss and phase performance for reliable electrical performance over the entire life cycle.

GORE® SKYFLEX Aerospace Materials exemplify the use of Gore innovation beyond cable solutions. Significantly easier to install than FIP seals, these lightweight, flexible tapes and gaskets eliminate cure time for sealing and protective materials, significantly reducing manufacturing cycles and direct maintenance time. Also, their unique construction enables them to maintain their protective performance over multiple open/close cycles, which translates to fewer replacements and re-work of seals and significant savings in personnel time during production and maintenance.
