Goodrich selects U.S. Air Force for F-35 landing gear coatings
Goodrich Corporation has selected the U.S. Air Force’s Ogden Air Logistics Center (OO-ALC) at Hill Air Force Base, UT, to provide specialty coatings on landing gear for the F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft. The OO-ALC will apply high velocity oxygenated fuel (HVOF) thermal spray coating on Goodrich landing gear components produced for the F-35. This agreement runs through May 2009 and covers requirements for five landing gear shipsets of the F-35.
HVOF coating technology is increasingly being used in aerospace applications such as landing gear because it provides an alternative to hard chrome plating. Goodrich, along with the F-35 integrated product team, worked closely with OO-ALC on technical, quality and program elements to bring the depot’s HVOF process online in a production environment.
