Esterline Engineered Materials’ TA Aerospace in Valencia, CA (NYSE: ESL www.esterline.com/engineeredmaterials), a world leader in the design and manufacture of metallic and elastomer clamping systems, grommets and thermal fire barrier insulation has recently expanded their Fastblock® product line to include Fastblock® 401. Fastblock® 401 is a low density fluorosilicone-based fuel resistant material, most recently designed to provide insulation for hydraulic fluid lines inside an aircraft’s fuel tank. It is available in molded shapes, sealant or spray-on form and provides insulation for both hot and cold environments.
Fastblock® provides thermal protection for everything from heat shields on space launch systems to the engine firewalls on air, ground and marine vehicles with versatile forms such as caulking, coating, spraying or molding. Just one layer of Fastblock® 401 “1 millimeter in depth” could improve thermal operating range by 50 degrees F in both high and low temperature environments.
