Saint-Gobain Seals Used On Falcon 7X

Seals and polymers manufacturer Saint-Gobain has confirmed that its OmniGasket, a gasket made from a machined polyimide plate with a static seal, is being installed as part of the deicing system on Dassault’s large-cabin, long-range business jet the Falcon 7X and is also being tested on a new mid-sized jet. The sealing component, which is mounted at the interface between the telescopic duct and the wing leading edge, has recently been redesigned by Saint-Gobain and its shape changed from round to oval to optimise space.
