Lightening and Lightning: Metal Coated Plastic Parts for Aerospace

Lightweight Electrical Aircraft/Aerospace Connectors

In an effort to reduce in weight of electronic components in aircraft and other aerospace applications, electrical connecters made out of PEEK high temperature plastic were given a Surface Engineering Technologies proprietary metal coating to make them both conductive and durable.  These parts weighed less than half of the original parts, but were much harder and more durable and passed a lightning test without of many streams of lightning bolts zapping downward from a fixed ceiling plane to a flat surface in a controlled testing environment
