FOX Industries Grinding Media— Making Air Travel Safer

Do you know what’s happening outside an airplane at 30,000 feet?

Violent winds batter the plane. Temperatures of -57° C (-70° F), freeze the hull. Dust traveling at 900 km/h, scrapes the plane like sandpaper.

Over 5 billion passengers fly every year. Most of those people just want to know that the plane can get them from point A to point B, quickly and safely. They don’t think twice about how the surface coatings of an airplane make air travel safer.

But when you take a closer look at the technology behind that safe flight, you’ll be amazed.

The high tech, industrial coatings that cover the plane, have to protect it from UV irradiation. From temperatures that can reach up to 50°C (120° F) on the runway. From the vibration effect of incredibly powerful engines, aircraft hull and wing movements. Even from the corrosive effects of fuel, de-icing fluids, and hydraulic liquids.

With FOX Grinding Media at the center of the bead milling process, stable, more durable aerospace coating formulas have been created. So you can enjoy your flight, and not worry about what’s happening outside an airplane at 30,000 feet.
