|SABIC's Materials for Aircraft Interiors
At the Aircraft Interiors 2017 (April 4 - 6), SABIC
will be showcasing materials that are helping aircraft makers lighten their load and enhance their design capabilities.
Performance Enhancement Products for Aviation
SABIC (Booth 7B70) will highlight its broad portfolio of products that will help the world's aviation sectors address the major performance and environmental challenges that lie ahead:
- SABIC's CLEAR LEXAN™ XHR2000 sheet for aircraft interiors was a 2015 Crystal Cabin Award winner for materials and components.
- SABIC's JET PANEL™ laminate sheet, a transparent, durable material based on the LEXAN XHR2000 sheet, for its innovative bin design that incorporated storage with a floor-to-ceiling class divider panel.
- Another variation on this theme -- SABIC's new, patent-pending LEXAN XHR LIGHT sheet series - can offer up to 36% weight savings over PVC/PMMA-based solid sheet products. This can help increase fuel savings by approximately $660 for each kilogram of weight reduction.
- SABIC licensed Italy's Studio Gavari to design a sleek, ergonomically advanced, 3D-printed, economy-class airplane seat using filaments from SABIC's ULTEM™ 9085 resin. That grade offers design flexibility, is 3D printing compatible, and FAR 25.853 and OEM toxicity compliant.
