Alcore (Edgewood, Md.), a division of M.C. Gill Corp., is offering Strikegrid Continuous Expanded Aluminum Foil (CEAF) lightning protection for aircraft. Reportedly, the highly corrosion resistant material retains virtually all of its physical properties after subjection to a salt spray test. It is designed to eliminate the need for priming, resist fire and fungus, prevent surface microcracking and withstand lightning strikes of up to 200,000 amps on aircraft control surfaces, exposed composite parts, composite fuselage and aircraft engine nacelles as well as marine and naval panels, wind turbine blades and other composite structures.
