In a market-driven by demand for greater aircraft performance and commercial return, we understand the aerospace industry’s need to innovate and push the envelope of material performance, application, and manufacturing. With our broad manufacturing capabilities and vertical integration, Mid-Mountain provides high quality, engineered thermal barriers and seals to meet those needs, and enhance both performance and safety on aircraft.

Our core technologies are frequently used to create new materials for aerospace safety and process-specific applications, which has resulted in revolutionary breakthroughs in flexible industrial coated fabrics, covers, and removable insulation blankets.  Many of our standard coated fabrics used in aerospace products are manufactured in accordance with ATSM, FAR, BMS, and MIL specifications.

Mid-Mountain has helped the world’s leading aerospace companies achieve competitive advantage and increased safety with the use of our products.  With an emphasis on product development, we work closely with our customers to address the needs of their application, using raw materials tailored to the best possible outcome.  Our area of focus for aviation applications continues to be on the development of new materials, the improvement of current material properties, and the application of current materials in new and novel structures.


In addition to thermal barriers and seals for aircraft, Mid-Mountain is dedicated to ensuring the safety of passengers as they board the aircraft.  ARMATEX® SF 37 Jetstar is designed for use as folding canopies on passenger boarding bridges (air bridges, jet bridges and jetways.  With high flexural resistance, this coated fabric is abrasion, weather resistant and has superior strength.  In addition, ARMATEX® SF 37 Jetstar meets or exceeds the requirements of the NFPA specifications 255 and 701*, and is classified as Class A per NFPA 101, Life Safety Code.

Safety in the cargo bay of an airplane is a large part of passenger safety. The very real risk of sudden fires known to break out in cargo holds requires a solution for passenger safety. In response to this risk, Mid-Mountain developed ARMATEX® NF 14 Cargo Tex, a fire-resistant coated fabric designed for smoke curtains and liner fabric for cargo bays of commercial aircraft and cargo planes. ARMATEX® NF 14 CARGO TEX utilizes a high-strength woven fiberglass as a substrate for an innovative polymer coating. The fiberglass fabric is the strongest available for its weight and with the polymer coating the fabric has incredible dimensional stability and exceptional flame retardant characteristics, meets or exceeds the requirements of BMS8-343, Type I & Ill, and passes the FAA specification for Radiant Panel Flammability Testing.

Our wide range of chemical formulation, fabric coating, weaving, and fabrication capabilities allow us to offer solutions to all aerospace and aviation manufacturing needs, as well as those for spacecraft. In conjunction with Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL), Air Born Systems and NASA, we developed a high performance coated fabric for potential use as a Supersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (SIAD-E) for the Mars 2020 Rover. The SIAD-E was designed to fully deploy un under two seconds at conditions up to Mach 4 and dynamic pressures up to 2000 Pa. The most challenging part of engineering this fabric was coating silicone compound onto Technora braided fabric which is a very dimensionally unstable and heat sensitive fabric

The Aerospace/Aviation industry demands materials of the highest quality that perform reliably and predictably under extreme operating conditions for long periods of time. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification ensures our products meet these high-quality standards, and our extensive background of materials science knowledge and engineering techniques allows us to overcome challenges faced by the industry.
