Curatives and Additives
Adding curatives and additives to polyurethane provides the different physical properties to the finished product. Different chemical combinations also provide the desired resistance and electrical conductivity or whatever the resulting product requirement maybe.
In the Beginning:
Fjord Aviation Products began as an idea that there had to be a better product for protecting the wing of an aircraft during overwing fueling. Thanks to the late Dudley Luntsford and the late John Thelen and many hours of trial and error the Fjord Aviation urethane wing mat became a reality. This urethane mat was flexible, durable, fuel and chemical resistant, non-abrasive and non-marring compared to the "fishnet" or "neoprene" mat.
The Growing Years:
Twenty five years later this concept of urethane products being used in aviation ground fueling safety equipment has blossomed into not only different sizes of wing mats but dust covers for both over and underwing fueling nozzles, scuff rings for underwing nozzles, bottom load adapter covers and hose band protectors as well as specialty items such as a jet spout conversion adapter and an all weather breather cap for the manhole cover on refueling trucks to mention a few - check out our products page.
The company not only manufactures urethane ground fueling safety equipment but also is a distributor for various other manufacturers such as aviation fuel filters, aviation fueling hoses and hose reels, grounding reels and cable, fuel quality testing equipment to mention a few. Thus the other vision for the company comes forth - a one stop place for providing the products and knowledge for "clean dry fuel to the aircraft."
Where we're going:
These past twenty five years aviation has seen & been through many changes and will continue to evolve, as will all of us associated with and/or servicing aviation, but our commitment still stands-To provide to the best of our ability "clean dry fuel to the aircraft" through our manufactured products and the other products we sell.
