Aerospace And Defense

Team Fralock Img 1The development and engineering of spacecraft, satellites, aircraft, and missiles is a challenging endeavor. Rigorous requirements in harsh environments require thoughtful, calculated design and precise engineering. Each component must be designed to exact specification to satisfy multiple requirements for these critical applications. As an AS-9100 and ITAR registered company, Fralock ‘s engineers work as an extension of your engineering team to provide optimal solutions for aerospace and defense applications. With over 50 years of product design, specialty material and process knowledge, we are experts at helping you reach your design and production goals. Fralock’s Technical Knowledge (FTK) allows us to combine seemingly incompatible materials for mission-critical applications. Our pioneered adhesiveless lamination enables production of fully-encapsulated flex circuits and cables, sealing the traces from environmental damage. This type of bonded material provides superior performance over using adhesives, which tend to degrade under extreme environmental and chemical stressors.

Robust Encapsulated Polyimide Flat Flex Cables

Team Fralock Img 1Fralock is the sole manufacturer for DuPontTM Cirlex®, and the sole distributor of White Kapton.  Cirlex® is a versatile polyimide that is laminated without adhesives and custom fabricated into many shapes and sizes. Highly  machinable, with high tolerance of thermal, physical and chemical properties, it can be used in applications such as flex circuits, flex-to-board connectors, thermal and electrical interface applications, thrust washers, shims and spacers. White Kapton® is a high emissivity Kapton film widely used for space applications, and can be metalized for applications in spacecraft and aircraft. Fralock also provides HEK pressure-sensitive adhesive tape made with White Kapton®. With over 50 years of product design, material and process knowledge, Fralock’s engineering team can overcome your challenges to produce optimal performance with aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, and space-based solar arrays.sole distr
