Solus Advanced Materials said on Tuesday that it has supplied specialized copper foil to Airbus.
Solus’ European subsidiary, Circuit Foil Luxembourg, supplied to lightning strike protection (LSP) copper foil for aerospace application.
The foils are used to protect the surface of the body of planes from lighting.
Copper foil is placed within carbon fiber composite, which reduces damages from lightning.
