Lightning Strike Protection White PaperMISSION CRITICAL: How Expanded Metal Protects from the Damaging Effects of Lightning Strikes

All thunderstorms are dangerous because every thunderstorm produces lightning.

For aircraft and wind turbines, lightning strikes can be exceptionally dangerous; however, because of stringent and mandated safety measures, they seldom result in extensive damage. The most effective lightning strike protection system includes embedding a fine expanded metal micromesh within the surface layers throughout an aircraft or within the nacelle and blades of a wind turbine.

This white paper will discuss the effects of lightning strikes, preventative measures, and how using expanded metal micromesh can limit the damage.
