Aerospace OEM


What does OEM stand for in aviation? Original Equipment Manufacturer

The aerospace market contributes billions of pounds to the global economy each year, and this process begins with the design, manufacture and assembly of aircraft by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

Silmid continue to deliver a wide variety of product approved by major OEMs such as Airbus and Boeing, with a growing portfolio designed to meet changing demands and newer generation aircraft. Partnering with key brands such as AeroShell, PPG Aerospace, 3M, Eastman and many more we hold large stock volumes to support OEM's.

Fuel Tank and Fuselage Sealants

With the global push for cost savings and environmental responsibility, aerospace OEMs have increased the demand for weight saving sealants. A range of low density options are available from PPG, 3M Aerospace and Naftoseal, covering critical sealing operations such as fuel tanks, firewalls, access doors and windshields and canopies.

Speciality Cleaning and NDT 

As part of any bonding, sealing or lubricating process, it is essential that components and substrates are clean and free from any contaminants. From solvent based to water based, straight chemical or impregnated wipe, Silmid have the right solution for any application.

Structural Adhesive Compounds

Although largely unseen, adhesives are a critical component of any aircraft manufacturing process. Structural adhesives have for many years added extra rigidity to substrates held together by rivets or fasteners. Today, they take on an additional role, bonding newly manufactured composite materials together, saving weight in the process. The majority of Silmid’s structural adhesive range is in either paste or film form, and covers applications across the internal structure, nacelle, engine and aircraft interior.
