Gold-X Nose

The MCM GOLD-X Nose is a product that was designed specifically to combat the abrasive ramp environment as well as to solve a problem of full connector insertion (power pin contact) on certain aircraft.

The nose material has the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently available. Additional benefits include a very low coefficient of friction, high resistance to corrosive liquids and an extremely low moisture absorption rate. To add to the performance characteristics of the material, the nose was designed with a machined perimeter edge to allow for full insertion into the recessed receptacle on certain aircraft regaining approximately 20 percent contact on the power pins. The end result is a product that is light in weight while delivering exceptional performance.

The Gold-X Nose is secured to the connector base by two Allen head screws. This Allows for easy removal and replacement.
