From Launchpad to Landing: Next Generation Materials for Mars and Beyond

Today’s aerospace companies have set their sights on traveling further than ever before. To achieve that goal, they are developing spacecraft with record speed. The volume of components being produced has increased to match. Reusability of components is more important than ever. Companies are reinventing their approach to manufacturing to emphasize speed and efficiency. With a myriad of new materials, as well as tried and true options available, manufacturers have a lot to evaluate to find the right match for new applications and processes.

View an archived webinar of Clarissa Miller, Momentive’s Global Program Manager for Aerospace
Silicones and Matthew Lindberg, Momentive’s Aerospace and Defense Technical Account Manager
comparing materials and applications for extreme temperature fluctuations and how to use new
delivery systems and assembly methods to save resources and time.

Topics covered include:

  • Overview of silicones, epoxies and polyurethanes used for thermal protection in space
  • Meeting ASTM E595 low outgassing requirements for adhesives in crew capsules and satellites
  • Review of adhesive and sealant products and their application for the extreme temperature
    fluctuations encountered in reusable launch vehicles
  • Leveraging new delivery systems to save manufacturing resources and time
