Ames Corp. (Hamburg, N.J.), a manufacturer of elastomeric molded components, dispensed gaskets and insert molded components, has introduced AMESShield coatings for the protection of aircraft components from the effects of foreign objects damage (FOD). Proprietary formulation contains ice-phobic characteristics to resist forming and facilitating the shedding of ice. It's designed for application on composites, metal, elastomers and plastics. Coating capabilities include non-electrostatic and electrostatic-based systems capable of applying uniform thicknesses of coatings ranging from a few microns to 20-30 mils, with typical applications using 20 layers of 0.5 mils each. Ames reports it has developed a method to measure single- or dual-layer thicknesses of elastomer coatings at levels in the low micron range. A range of high-performance elastomer formulations such as fluoroelastomer, silicones, and fluorosilicones, as well as conventional elastomers for less demanding applications are offered. Uniform multilayer film build ensures total coverage and maximum aerodynamic conditions.
