Thanks to its R&D and electroplating departments, Esterline Connection Technologies - SOURIAU-SUNBANK maintains a competitive edge in the non-reflectivity of connectors. Historically, both SOURIAU connectors and SUNBANK backshells and conduits have been integrated in defense equipment and are among the first choice of most military manufacturers in the world.
Different military standards have been important drivers in the development of connectors. One of the requirements found in most standards is the non-reflectivity of connectors which are used for various military equipment. Non-reflectivity is one aspect, but another is the color of the products. The olive green color remains the dominant one although since the implementation of new European regulations concerning environmental practices, there are a number of cases where specifications shift from olive green to black or gray, while keeping the notion of non-reflectivity. Thanks to its R&D and electroplating departments, Esterline Connection Technologies - SOURIAU-SUNBANK maintains a competitive edge in this area and is a global leader for high-performance and highly reliable non-reflective connectors.
