JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
The company will beging the direct sales of spare parts for the rotary-wing market (components of rotor sets of helicopters and equipment) and fixed-wing market (cushions for engines, APU, interiors and equipment).
LORD will participate for the first time in the Expo Aero Brazil, where it will announce the beginning of the direct sales of spare parts for the rotary-wing market (components of rotor sets of helicopters and equipment) and fixed-wing market (cushions for engines, APU, interiors and equipment). Until then, explains Fernando Dias, account manager for the aerospace and defense markets in South America, negotiations with local companies occurred only via U.S. distributors. “We have invested in a commercial structure in U.S. and Brazil which will give the conditions to directly supply helicopter manufacturers and companies specialized in maintenance,” he says. LORD will also show at the event various types of cushions that reduce equipment vibration and other aircraft components. Since it also has a strong presence in the chemical sector, LORD will introduce at the show a few structural adhesives and the Aeroglaze® coating, a special polyurethane-based coating that prevents the composite material deterioration caused by rain and sand erosion. “It is used, for example, in the painting of radomes and leading edges,” says Dias. Another highlight prepared for the event will be the disclosure of the entire portfolio of sensors from MicroStrain, a company recently acquired by LORD. “These are varied sensing solutions that include data such as voltage, pressure, temperature, vibration, corrosion, etc. and have wireless transmission capacity. They are used in the monitoring of equipment and parts, stressing the need for maintenance or replacement”.LORD is a Brazilian subsidiary of the U.S. company LORD Corporation. Located in Cary, North Carolina, in 2012 its global sales totaled US$ 880 million. More information:www.lordla.com
