Saint-Gobain receives China’s CAAC certification for repairs
Saint-Gobain Aerospace has been approved by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for the test, inspection and repair of radomes and fuselage components for civil aircraft. Radomes are radar transparent structures that house the critical weather radar system for aircraft. The repair of radomes requires specialized repair processes to assure that the radome will function properly and not degrade the critical weather radar system used to avoid bad weather while in flight. Saint-Gobain Aerospace specializes in the design, manufacture, repair and certification of high-performance aerospace composites and radomes. Saint-Gobain’s Norton Armor paint system is available as an option to reduce maintenance costs and extend the service life of new and repaired radomes. Saint-Gobain is AS9100 and ISO14001 Certified and is also certified for repair of radomes and components by the FAA, EASA and CAAC.
