This market uses a wide variety of materials in various weapons systems where durability and reliability are critical. For example, Arlon’s 85NT is a material used in the guidance electronics systems of missiles.  The low CTE of the material makes it ideal in applications where standard laminate materials undergoing rapid temperature and pressure changes may produce a significant mismatch of expansion coefficients between the substrate and components resulting in stress at the contact points and ultimately causing component failure.  The low CTE of 85NT reduces this risk of failure.  Additionally, many ‘smart’ weapons using RF sensors must have highly reliable materials in the triggering mechanisms.  Arlon’s polyimide and low flow materials (85N, 85HP, 84N, 33N, 35N, 37N, 38N, 49N, 51N) are used when reliability is essential.  Arlon offers the most comprehensive selection of product solutions in the market for designers and fabricators when working with designs requiring high reliability with polyimide resins.  If you need material solutions for your design and fabrication challenges, Arlon gives you the most options for success.
