Providing Customized Elastomer Coatings for Aerospace and Aircraft Components.
Extreme Quality for Extreme Conditions
Erosion Protection Coating
Whether caused by sand, foreign objects, or rain, impact erosion is a constant concern in the aerospace industry. AMESShield provides a multi-functional solution that combines both material science as well as the system dynamics, yielding a total solution to erosion protection.
Ice Phobic Coating
AMESShield systems are also considered an excellent ice-phobic elastomeric coating. Ice adhesion testing reveals that the AMESShield process yielded ice adhesion results that were significantly less than competing coating materials. This ability to shed ice in a passive system can have a significant impact on reducing the requirements for other active anti-icing systems such as bladders or electro-thermal technologies.
AMESShield is applied in a very controlled and uniform manner, in a way that provides superior adhesion to ensure permanence under the harshest condition. The AMESShield system can be tailored to exposure to various chemicals, including salt spray, jet fuel, and propylene glycol without impacting the ice adhesion results. This type of protection is unique in the industry.
AMESShield for Complete Control
Whether it’s for a premium ice-phobic elastomeric coating with the ability to shed ice at significantly lower pressure levels than the alternatives while providing a superior high temperature service lie, or just providing outstanding erosion protection for your existing de-icing system; AMESShield leads the way by using a variety of material systems such as silicone, fluorosilicone, fluoroelastomer and fluoropolymers whether alone or in combination.
Taking Care of your Manufacturing Needs
Our facility is unique in its accommodation of spray technology. Especially for those systems that stand apart from standard technologies like the spraying of silicones. Combined with a wide range of surface preparation, bonding, and precision molding capabilities we’re sure to be able to offer the complete solution to your product needs.
Ames Corporation has been a great partner over the last 7 years. Ames has provided Case Medical with complete solutions ranging from the tooling to the flexible adaptability in keeping up with the changing demand accompanied by meticulous QC and QA which meets our specifications and needs.
Ames capabilities in working with Medical Grade Silicone along with precise engineering is helping us serve the medical market.
We will certainly collaborate with Ames for years to come.
Tyvek® has worked closely with Ames to develop an Elastomeric Covered Target Plate with sufficient mechanical tolerance, strength and electrical characteristics to meet our performance requirements. Ames took the time to understand our process requirements and our uncompromising demand for consistent Target Plate performance. Ames knowledge of Critical Elastomeric Components and their commitment to continuous improvement has resulted in a Target Plate which has met increasing and verifiable (100% inspection) requirements. I would certainly recommend Ames and look forward to our continued relationship.
I like working with Ames because they have become one point of contact for us instead of having to deal with multiple manufacturers. I have worked with Ames multiples times at different companies, and will continue to do so.
