AFRL helps extend serviceability of hydraulic aircraft components
Laboratory-produced examples of chafing into a titanium tube, one of many tests conducted by AFRL researchers to replicate wear through cold-spray applied coating into tubing material beneath. AFRL helped develop, test, and validate the cold spray coating process for the life extension of B-1 aircraft hydraulic lines. (U.S. Air Force photo/John McClure).
