Aircraft Carrier (Military) Coatings

Innovative technologies in cockpits and aviation towers enable modern aircraft to operate in nearly all weather conditions. Superior traction of landing gear tires on the runway surface is vital for a successful touch down or take off.

Why Use Anti-Skid Coating for Military and Naval Applications?

Attain the optimum anti-skid performance needed to bring an aircraft and its occupants to a safe stop on your military or naval flight surface using SafTrax anti-slip thermal spray coatings. With a coefficient of friction of 1:1 and corrosion-resistant properties, SafTrax coatings create a high-traction environment that protects metal substrates from degradation, wear, abrasion, heat, and impact forces.

Benefits of SafTrax Coating for Aircraft Carrier Applications

Offering an average lifespan of one decade or more, SafTrax anti-skid coatings are a durable and economical solution for naval and military flight surface traction and wear problems. Compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and surpassing Occupational Safety and Health Administration non-skid requirements, these coatings create safe work environments, withstand flexing and maintain corrosion resistance when gouged in service.

Anti-Skid Coating Characteristics

The SafTrax line of anti-slip coatings includes TH335, TH604, and TH605, which are ideal for aluminum, cast or ductile iron, stainless steel, and carbon steel surfaces. They are also suitable for concrete and plastic surfaces. TH604 is a tubular or cored aluminum wire filled with up to 46 percent of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) powder, whereas TH605 is tubular or cored wire filled with up to 46 percent of silicon carbide (SiC) powder. TH335 is a tubular or cored wire comprised of iron and packed with aluminum and carbon powders. 

Coating your flight surface with SafTrax coatings is easy and requires zero maintenance. It’s applied using a twin wire arc spray process, which does not require mixing, curing or cordoning off areas for long periods of time.
