Environmental impact, safety, maintenance and fuel efficiency are all key considerations that influence product design in the aerospace industry. One way that manufacturers are responding to these market drivers is the increased use of reinforced plastics in applications throughout the aircraft; these materials combine light weight with favourable properties like fatigue and corrosion resistance, leading to reduced maintenance schedules and shorter fleet down- time.

But the bonding issues associated with many polymer-based materials can cause problems for manufacturers that want to build products and components from plastic composites. Onto™ surface modification treatments enable the construction of superior products from a wider range of advanced materials for both visual and structural components where bonding is crucial to product performance and also provide an alternative to processes like sanding, leading to reduced rejection rates and shorter processing times.
