Plastics Tipped to Make Light Work of Aircraft Interiors
from Plastics & Rubber Weekly
The European Plastics Distributors Association (EPDA) believes that aviation grade plastics will play an increasingly important role in both new-build aircraft and makeovers from major airlines. The EPDA said aircraft seats had traditionally used metals and metal composite materials to meet strict Federal Aviation Administration flammability regulations. However, plastics companies like U.S.-based Sekisui Polymer Innovations, which has distributors throughout Europe, have recently introduced aviation grade thermoplastic sheet for seats and other aircraft interior components that meets these requirements.
