Windforms

MicroGrid’s single unit structure is superior to woven material in that it won’t unravel or have lose strands that become problematic during processing into a pre-preg material or when conducting a dry lay-up. The homogenous design also ensures uncompromised conductivity between strands when forming the material to a variety of shapes and contours and provides a smooth surface on the end product. MicroGrid’s biggest advantage is Dexmet’s ability to tightly control the manufacturing process to meet a specific weight, open area, and conductivity requirement. This allows Engineers the options of varying materials according to specific strike zones on the” Turbine Blades & Generator Nacelles “minimizing the overall weight. Our common materials have the ability to withstand a Zone 1A strike of 200,000 amps.”

Non-Aerospace

Our company is known internationally, especially for work in the development of lightning strike protection for aircraft and other composite-based structures. More recently, Dexmet Lightning Strike materials have been used to protect residential gas lines, marine and land-based masts, and other high value structures. Dexmet can provide a wide variety of metals, geometries, and secondary treatments to exacting specifications to meet your needs.
