Skandia Inc. Acquires Aerosionix, Rebrands as Aero Armor™
Acquisition brings a new generation of aircraft exterior protection technology
Skandia Incorporated, a global leader in aircraft seat foam, custom acoustic and soundproofing solutions as well as flammability testing and certification engineering has acquired assets of Aerosionix, LLC of Wellsville, New York.
In 2014, the Aerosionix team brought together 3 decades of experience to launch an enhanced line of aircraft protection film products used to protect aircraft surfaces from contamination and erosion that impede airborne weather radar performance, exterior antennae performance, and degraded paint on leading edge surfaces from bugs and other debris.
The acquisition allows Skandia to begin marketing Aerosionix’ newest and technologically superior product line, now branded as Aero Armor™, by Skandia. The Aero Armor™ line of products will be the market’s highest performing aircraft protection film available. It is being sold under the product names Aero Armor™ Radome, Aero Armor™ Antennae and Aero Armor™ Edge Tape.
The Aero Armor™ Radome and Antennae lines are offered in pre-formed condition and available for most every business and general aviation aircraft nose or radome surface. It does not require formal approval to be installed. Offered in a variety of widths, Aero Armor™ Edge Tape can be applied to aircraft leading-edge surface, from wheel pants, struts, wings and tails. Jarod Triplett, Skandia Vice President, sees the acquisition and integration of this new product line as a perfect fit to Skandia’s existing products and services. “Aero Armor™ is superior to any other protective film product on the market today. It is remarkable in its durability and easy maintenance. Aero Armor™ allows nearly anything to be wiped right off…from dried crusty bugs to even a permanent marker. By offering protection to radome and antennae surfaces, Aero Armor™ also keeps aircraft performance at its peak and safer flying overall. Once installed, it is nearly unnoticeable and will never turn yellow unlike some competing products.”
