TenCate Advanced Armor Signs Teaming Agreement With Air Cargo Containers

NEWARK, Ohio — March 11, 2014 — TenCate Advanced Armor USA has signed a teaming agreement with Air Cargo Containers, LLC to manufacture lightweight air cargo containers. The fully-certified, lightweight, composite air cargo carriers have a tare weight of 480lbs or about 350 pounds less than competing aluminum containers, a 42 percent weight savings. These innovative protective containers will be presented this week at the World Cargo Symposium held in Los Angeles, California, United States of America.

Air Cargo Containers, LLC was granted Technical Standard Order (TSO C90d) certification for its lightweight-composite AMJ model Unit Load Device (ULD) in December 2013. It is the first all-composite container to receive this certification by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It is constructed of proprietary composite side panels and floor panel, built around an aerospace grade aluminum frame, for lightness and durability as well as improved maintenance characteristics and flame retardant capability. The composite material and assembly of the entire container will be done by TenCate Advanced Armor in Ohio.
