SOURIAU’s composite connectors for aeronautics REACH Compliant

SOURIAU-SUNBANK Connection Technologies announced this month that its composite D38999 connectors are now completely REACH-compliant, with an alternative to hexavelant chromium having been rolled out since last year.

An increasingly important part of Souriau’s D38999 range incorporates composite materials either with a nickel-plated finish or with no finish and is mainly intended for civil and military aeronautics applications. The advantage of the PEEK composite used, is that it offers high performance in severe environments, is corrosion resistant and weighs less than aluminium.
