Meggitt Polymer & Composites (MPC) is a strategic business unit within Meggitt PLC. MPC has been a leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of robust, cost effective, sealing solutions, for almost 40 years.

There’s more to Meggitt Polymers & Composites than taking the geometry of a gap and filling it with rubber. Talk to us at the concept stage of an engine or aircraft’s life and we’ll design and manufacture seals in new high performance elastomers that cost less and will not weigh you down.

Here’s why. We can form the structure of the most complex parts and join them – minimally. We can combine materials expertly, even replacing metallics with lightweight composites. Our highly specialised sealing products provide critical safety margins and functionality where reliability and survivability cannot be compromised.

With more than 700 employees and 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space, Meggitt Polymers & Composites is the world leader in the provision of complete aircraft sealing solutions.

Meggitt Polymer Solutions was created in 2008 following the merger of Dunlop Bestobell in the UK with Meggitt Silicone Products in North America
