"Cork slows heat transmission through the fairing and keeps the carbon structure below a critical temperature"
Cork was the material highlighted in the June 8 edition of the German journal VDI nachrichten.
Due to the material’s composition, besides its leveling and fairing function, it fosters a significant weight reduction, since it is 2 to 5 times lighter than conventional primary decking solutions in the market. This has a direct impact on the vessel’s final weight and stability, improving vessel performance and ratin…
Due to the materials composition, besides its leveling and fairing function it significantly benefits weight reduction, being 2 to 5 times lighter than conventional primary decking’s having a direct impact on final vessel weight, stability and therefore improved vessel performance and rating.
Amorim Cork Composites is going to hit aerospace again, this time with United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Ruag Space.
Next-generation launch rockets of ULA, using composite primary structures supplied by Ruag Space, are going to incorporate Amorim’s ablative thermal solution P50. Under the name Vulcan, these ULA launch rockets will replace Atlas and Delta Launchers, currently using Amorim's product. Fairing shell with Amorim P50 ablat…
Thermal protection with cork
Amorim Cork Composites’ participation in the project will support the development of simulation processes and the structural design with the production of thermal protection components. The company's mission includes the creation of a new cork-based solution – Spatulated Thermal Protection System (TPS) - which can be a…
