Jet engine shrouds made with high-temperature resistant Vespel® SCP-5050 composite material offer proven impact resistance and potentially significant weight savings (40% less versus aluminum; 75% less versus stainless steel and titanium). Shrouds made with Vespel® SCP-5050 also provide longer component life thanks to reduced wear interfaces, utilization of bearing material for the entire shroud, and elimination of bushing life issues.
Composite shrouds provide a low-friction, wear-resistant surface that prevents damage to expensive metal vane stems. Further, Vespel® SCP-5050 can simplify design and assembly, and the weight savings realized by using this material can help improve aircraft fuel efficiency, range and payload capacity.
