In a first individual project which is currently in preparation, SGL Carbon will supply fabrics for structural components in Airbus helicopters. The two companies have defined the framework conditions for the cooperation in a joint agreement that regulates the basic provision and further development of innovative carbon and fibreglass materials.

The helicopter manufacturer Airbus Helicopters Germany and SGL Carbon have been working together for years in the field of processing composite materials for aircraft doors of the Airbus Group. In the future, the cooperation with Airbus will be further intensified, according to a press release by SGL.

“The agreement is an important milestone and the result of the trusting partnership of recent years. The teams on both sides have achieved a great deal in the development of new tailor-made material solutions for components in helicopters. In this process, SGL Carbon contributes with its comprehensive holistic material expertise in the field of production of composite components,” said Andreas Erber, head of segment aerospace at SGL Carbon’s business unit composites – fibres & materials (CFM).
