Abstract
Not Available Applique containing a few percent carbon nanofiber additive can have excellent lightning strike protection while also having a very low electromagnetic cross section, making such appliques useful for aerospace assets with reduced signatures. The carbon nanofibers additive is relatively inexpensive, costing from $50 to $100 per pound depending on its form, or in other words a few dollars additional cost per pound for applique containing a few percent carbon nanofibers.
