AASC routinely applies thermal control coatings to many of our structures. These range from very fragile optical solar reflectors (mirrors) to thermal paints to very thin films that are co-cured with composites or secondarily bonded to our structures.
Optical Solar Reflectors (OSRs)
AASC has experience bonding very thin 2" x 2" and 1" x 1" OSRs onto large heat pipe panels utilizing standard RTV adhesives. A segregated OSR bonding room is utilized for this process.
AASC has a large paint booth for application of numerous types of paint. AASC routinely applies Z306, Z307, A276 and other specialty ESD and thermal paints.
AASC routinely bonds specialty films to structural panels for thermal protection or thermal performance. These films include aluminized Kapton, black Kapton, gold Kapton, Tedlar and other specialy films.
