Launch with Reduced Costs

Leverage our Small Business Structure to deliver high quality composites manufactured in a state of the art facility, with laser projection and the reliability of an AS9100 D supplier. Discover why so many launch providers choose Carbon by Design.

Dedicated Facilities for Corking & Ablatives

Dedicated facilities for the application of Corking and DC 93-104 Silicone based ablative materials to composite and metallic structures. Our team includes members who specialize in the fabrication of ablative materials.

Thermal Protection - Ablatives & Corking

Specialized teams on-site utilize mission-specific facilities to prepare and install ablative materials to composite and metallic structures. Assemblies can be delivered raw or coated with a selection or anti-static or conductive coatings.

We have extensive capabilities in the formation of DC 93-104 sheets and injected assemblies using an internally developed injection molding process which is a cost effective alternative to conventional approaches.

Typical ablative applications include:

  • Injection Molding of Complex Shapes Using Dow Corning DC 93-104

  • RF Conduits and Antenna Mounts

  • Aerodynamic and Primary Structures


Spacecraft Interiors & Composites


Leveraging technology from our Transportation and Commercial Aircraft teams we have established a wide selection of materials and techniques which meet the most stringent fire, smoke and toxicity requirements. Materials are ASTM E-84, Class I & II Approved.

Common applications include: 

  • Interior Paneling

  • Lightweight Consoles and Storage

  • Difficult to Fabricate Ducting & Diffusers
