From Launchpad to Landing: Next Generation Materials for Mars and Beyond


Today's aerospace companies have set their sights on traveling further than ever before. To achieve that goal, they are developing spacecraft with record speed. The volume of components being produced has increased to match. Reusability of components is more important than ever. Companies are reinventing their approach to manufacturing to emphasize speed and efficiency. With a myriad of new materials, as well as tried and true options available, manufacturers have a lot to evaluate to find the right match for new applications and processes.

Join Clarissa Miller, Momentive’s Global Program Manager for Aerospace Silicones as she compares and contrasts different materials and applications for extreme temperature fluctuations. Matthew Lindberg, an experienced Aerospace and Defense Technical Account Manager will discuss how delivery systems and assembly methods can save resources and time.

Topics covered will include:

  • Overview of silicones, epoxies and polyurethanes used for thermal protection in space
  • Meeting ASTM E595 low outgassing requirements for adhesives in crew capsules and satellites
  • Review of adhesive and sealant products and their application for the extreme temperature fluctuations encountered in reusable launch vehicles
  • Leveraging new delivery systems to save manufacturing resources and time

There will be an audience Q&A after the technical webinar
