Title: AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL ISOLATION COMPONENT AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING ELECTRICAL ISOLATION COMPONENT
Abstract:
A structural assembly of an aircraft has a fastener extending into first and second structural members. A washer (120) is disposed between the fastener and one of the structural members to electrically insulate the fastener and the structural members. The washer has a core (121) of reinforcement fibers supported in a thermoplastic matrix material (122). Electrically-insulating outer layers of glass fibers (124) overlay the core.
