Crazing

October 23, 2013 - 10:35am

Battelle has developed a robotic system to repair aircraft windows combining the company’s existing automated maintenance robot and a manual method of transparency restoration.

As a result of weathering and microfracturing, acrylic aircraft windows tend to craze within three to seven years, turning a clear surface into a milky, opaque one that can severely limit vision. The existing process of restoring windows to their original clarity requires technicians to hand buff out the scratches and crazing, a process that takes a significant amount of training, skill and time.

FreshAir Services, a New England-based aircraft cleaning and appearance company, is now offering aircraft window repair and restoration as part of its services.
