New for 2019, and exclusively offered by TAI, our experts now provide the world's only gold and nickel-plated Al-Cu hybrid thermal straps. Previously, it was only possible to plate straps made entirely of copper OR aluminum. Now, customers requiring the corrosion protection of electroless nickel and the thermal performance of OFHC cu cables, can have the added benefit of lightweight aluminum end fittings (reducing overall strap mass as much as 60%, depending on rope length); making Al-Cu hybrid thermal straps an attractive option for defense, spaceflight and airborne applications.
