An end user researching a radio transparent material for radome covers on its aircraft has specified Ketron GF30 PEEK due to its ability to provide dimensional stability despite fluctuating temperatures.

As the aircraft loads in 35°C+ summer temperatures, it takes on its northern route, subjecting the aircraft to sub-zero temperatures by the journey’s end.

Therefore, a plastic that can handle the radio transparency while holding tolerance in a changing environment is crucial.

Key benefits of product application

  • Chemical resistance
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Inherently good wear and abrasion resistance
  • Unaffected by continuous exposure to hot water or steam
