Space Plastics

Since each mission is unique!

We provide a range of polymers tailored for diverse applications, including:

  • Bio Plastics (not yet qualified)
  • Recycled Plastics
  • Glass Reinforced Plastic
  • Thermally Conductive Plastics
  • Electrically Conductive Plastics
  • High-performance polymers such as Peek and Ultem

Some of the plastics, such as the biopolymers, are not yet qualified for space applications. However, we are working very hard to achieve this qualification in order to bring these sustainable materials into space.


Of course, Aluminum remains indispensable!

We aim not to eliminate the use of aluminum; instead, we strive to employ aluminum judiciously in space missions. The suitability of aluminum or plastics depends on the specific application. For example, in certain aerospace applications, the lighter weight of plastics might be an advantage, while the electrical and thermal conductivity of aluminum could be more beneficial in other contexts.

Our approach involves a strategic marriage of aluminum and plastic in a hybrid fashion, seeking to strike a harmonious balance between cost, weight, CO2 footprint, and quality considerations. This innovative combination allows for cost-effective and environmentally friendly mission launches while ensuring technical safety across all aspects of the mission.
