Aviation & Aerospace: Elevating Performance with ROHACELL® Foam

Chem-Craft > Markets > Aviation & Aerospace: Elevating Performance with ROHACELL® Foam


In the rapidly evolving aviation and aerospace industries, the demand for innovative materials that deliver superior performance, safety, and efficiency is paramount. With an acute focus on embracing lightweight, high-strength materials, these sectors are increasingly turning away from conventional metals in favor of advanced composite solutions.

At the forefront of this transformative shift is ROHACELL® foam, setting new standards in the design and manufacture of critical aerospace components.


Unmatched Lightweight Strength With ROHACELL®

The quest for materials that combine lightness with exceptional strength and durability has led the aerospace industry to ROHACELL® – a rigid polymethacrylimide (PMI) foam core known for its superior mechanical properties.

Utilized in a variety of exterior aircraft parts, including wings, landing gear doors, radomes, and engine cowling, ROHACELL® foam cores offer unparalleled stiffness-to-weight ratios. This not only facilitates significant weight reduction (enhancing fuel efficiency), but also ensures excellent performance under the rigorous demands of flight.

Moreover, ROHACELL® foam cores are crucial components in helicopter construction, being used in key areas, including the main rotor blade, horizontal stabilizer, skids, and tail rotor blade. The advent of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles marks another field where ROHACELL®’s attributes are indispensable.

Its ability to form durable composite sandwich designs with carbon fiber exteriors makes it a preferred choice for next-generation air mobility solutions.


Revolutionizing Aerospace Structures With ROHACELL®

Performance foam core materials like ROHACELL® are also used in the fabrication of launch vehicles used in space exploration missions.

These high-performance sandwich composite structures serve critical roles in payload fairings, interstages, nose cones, and thermal protection shields. The intrinsic properties of ROHACELL® (its exceptional thermal stability and resistance to compressive forces) make it ideal for spacecraft that must endure extreme conditions during launch and re-entry phases.

ROHACELL® lightweight nature significantly contributes to increased payload capacity and reduced launch costs, facilitating more efficient and sustainable space missions.

As we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible beyond Earth’s atmosphere, materials like ROHACELL® will continue to play a pivotal role in ensuring safety, reliability, and constant success.
