Framewrok Contract between SGL Carbon and Airbus Helicopters

The further development of innovative carbon and glass fiber materials such as fabrics is one goal of the cooperation between Airbus Helicopters and SGL Carbon (© SGL Carbon)

The helicopter manufacturer Airbus Helicopters Germany and SGL Carbon SE, Wiesbaden, Germany, have been working together for years in the field of processing composite materials for aircraft doors of the Airbus Group. In the future, the cooperation with Airbus will be extended to applications for the helicopter sector and further intensified. The two companies have defined the framework conditions for this in a joint agreement recently that regulates the basic provision and further development of innovative carbon and fiberglass materials. A first individual project, which goes beyond the existing cooperation, concerns the supply of fabrics for structural components in Airbus helicopters and is currently in preparation.

In addition to their bilateral business relations, Airbus and SGL Carbon are jointly involved in various associations and research projects in the composites sector, such as the Carbon Composites e.V.
