W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) (Landenberg, PA) has enhanced its line of GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials with a new aviation fluid-repellent tape. Available in various sizes, the new sealant tape is well-suited for use on belly fairings, engine nacelles, tail boom covers, fuel bladders and access panels. This gap filling material provides durable, reliable protection in the most demanding conditions, including wide temperature ranges, bending, flexing, and exposure to chemically aggressive aircraft fluids.

GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials that repel aviation fluid consist of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) — a proprietary material used in the construction that has been chemically modified to resist typical aircraft fluids. At the same time, these materials have non-hazardous properties that meet industry standards.
