General Plastics supplies build-to-print polyurethane flexible foam products and aerospace grade rigid foam materials to original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies for aircraft flight decks and interior cabins. These customized products are used in flight deck pads, passenger cabin walls and ceilings, overhead stow bins, service class dividers, galleys and lavatories and as edge closeout. Our scalable operations can meet your most demanding supply needs.
General Plastics machines and fabricates rigid and flexible foam materials to aerospace customer specifications. We are also adept at painting, adhesive bonding, pre-preg, potting and resin-infusion processes. The company has proven patternmaking and tooling capabilities, and accept customer-supplied CAD data. General Plastics also offers broad CNC machining to precisely manufacture parts to customer requirements.
Ideal for military defense applications, our flexible, high-density polyurethane foams are formulated to absorb large amounts of impact energy at controlled rates while cushioning payloads from high G-stress levels. They have been used extensively as “spring-damper” shock isolation systems protecting missiles in underground silos and submarine launch tubes. The Minuteman, Peacekeeper and Trident programs have all been supported by General Plastics’ LAST-A-FOAM® products.
Our aerospace and defense clients also tap our extensive experience with polycarbonate and acrylic sheets for aircraft passenger windowpanes and wingtip-lens transparencies. From Air Force One to missile systems, General Plastics provides top-quality rigid and flexible foam and foam board products and solutions.
