February 2016: AeroFML R&D Project

Airbus confirms support for the joint R&D project aiming to develop large-sized AeroFML components. FML refers to fiber metal laminates, composite materials constructed by interlacing thin metal layers and fiber reinforced adhesives. SMWE is close to successfully accomplishing a challenging mission to produce prototypes made with an Almascan alloy, to be tested for conformance to Airbus requirements, as part of the homologation process.
