Export Controls Compliance—ITAR and EAR

Curbell has been supplying plastic materials and fabricated plastic parts to defense equipment manufacturers since the company was founded in 1942. In fact, Curbell was named after our first two customers, Curtiss-Wright and Bell Aircraft who were manufacturing military airplanes near our headquarters in Buffalo, New York at that time.

In April, 2015 Curbell Plastics registered with the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls and we initiated a comprehensive export controls compliance program. This allows us to participate in work that is covered under ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and EAR (Export Administration Regulations).

Curbell took this step in order to support our customers who manufacture defense-related products. We welcome the opportunity to supply you with plastic sheet, rod, tube, film, tapes, adhesives, and fabricated plastic parts that require compliance with ITAR and EAR.

Military Applications

We recognize that military equipment designers work on state-of-the-art systems that require advanced materials technology. Curbell’s salespeople and technical support associates have expertise with a wide range of polymers that are used for military hardware. Defense applications for plastics include equipment housings, vehicle interiors, bullet resistant windows, valve seals and seats, bearings, splines, missile components, and parts for military submarines. We welcome the opportunity to work with you on your application.

Lot Traceability and Material Specifications

Military equipment manufacturers often require that raw materials have lot and batch traceability and/or physical properties testing. Additionally, plastics used for military applications often have to conform (and be certified) to MIL specs, ASTM specifications and/or SAE specifications. Curbell works with customers, suppliers, and third parties to ensure that specifications are met and documentation is maintained and communicated when required.
