Materials for Aerospace products must meet rigorous FAR specifications for flammability. Extensive product knowledge is a commodity that the combined Gavco Team has, with over 165 years of combined plastics knowledge shared between 7 team members. Gavco Plastic’s clientele features Top Tier Global Aerospace companies. We work hand and hand with engineers from conception of a product through product realization. Often reverse engineering is required to determine the makeup of a part and how it can be produced in a cost saving scenario.
Traceability of a products beginning, is a prerequisite for Aerospace parts. Often additional testing for Flammability is required to satisfy the contractual requirements. Once the design is approved, tooling built and sample parts have been accepted then a First Article Inspection on those parts is required for acceptance of the product.
