Aerospace & military identification

Aerospace and military identification

On discovering that conventional films in the marketplace weren’t able to meet the required military specification, we engineered our own ground-breaking solutions. The resulting films and adhesives push the boundaries of pre-existing self-adhesive labels and comply with the highly demanding test methods used by the military.

These tests include Ministry of Defence Standard 00-35 (standard requirements for the environmental conditions experienced by defence materials in service).

Our bespoke range of uniquely durable solutions are designed to withstand exposure to chemical and biological environments, air pressure extremes, thermal shock and prolonged solar radiation. Uses include variable information identification of portable field equipment, vehicles, fixed and rotary wing aircraft, surface ships, submarines and munitions.

As applications for both military and aerospace surfaces have very particular requirements, we engineer solutions and undertake application testing for customers on a case-by-case development basis.

Features/options:

  • Abrasion resistant
  • High chemical resistance
  • Outdoor durability
  • UV resistant
  • Excellent durability
  • Superior printability
  • Bespoke development
  • High-tack adhesive

Warning and identification

These military grade solutions are also suitable for use on commercial aircraft. Exterior labels made from these films can withstand extreme climatic fluctuation combined with intense UV exposure, wind speed shear and attack from aggressive aviation hydraulic fluids.

Other applications include materials used to produce:

  • Mandatory markings
  • Information labelling
  • Component barcode identification
  • Security labels for passenger and cargo doors
