Aerospace Fabrication’s spacecraft components feature our MLI blanket and associated passive thermal control systems. Explore all of our offerings for spacecraft parts—from satellite components to rocket materials—below:
MLI blankets provide passive thermal control to a variety of spacecraft, launch vehicles, and instruments in vacuum when there are extreme changes in temperature. We provide a wide range of MLI blankets to the Aerospace community. These products are created using thin films, foils, and fabrics in a combination that minimizes heat transfer from one side to the other. Some common applications are:
MMOD—or Micrometeoroid Orbital Debris — Shields are specialized hybrid blankets. Their primary function is to cover and protect vulnerable surfaces from high velocity particles while a product or craft is in space.

Aerospace Fabrication personnel can provide specialty coated tapes for use as First Optical Solar Reflectors (FOSR). Our team is experienced in the application and installation of FOSR and similar radiator technologies for use on satellites and other spacecraft. We take great care in the creation and installation of these products to preserve the integrity of the materials for their final use. Some common applications are:
AFM offers the option of producing custom sun shields to fit each individual customer’s needs and requirements. We work with you to develop the design of the sun shield based on your test data and requirements. These sun shields are made from specialty coated thin films providing frequency selective transparency in the electromagnetic spectrum. Some common applications are:
The fabricators at AFM are experienced and equipped to create specialized high temperature MLI blankets and plume shields for use around spacecraft and rocket engine nozzles or other extreme high temperature sources. Some common applications are:
