General Plastics’ Aerospace-Grade Core Materials and Built-to-Print Polyurethane Parts For the Business Aviation Industry

General Plastics Manufacturing Company, manufacturer of aerospace-grade rigid foam core materials and build-to-print polyurethane foam products will be at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition on October 22 – 24, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV, Booth #C11434.

AEROSPACE-GRADE CORE MATERIALS

General Plastics manufactures rigid foam board materials to demanding physical property and flammability requirements for interior aerospace parts. LAST-A-FOAM® FR-3800 FST complies with various fire safety regulations, such as Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) flame and smoke regulations, aircraft manufacturer toxicity requirements, the Ohio State University (OSU) 65/65 heat release requirements, as well as the European Nation’s REACH regulation. It is a halogen-free polyurethane foam core which is an ideal alternative to thermoplastics foams and phenolic impregnated aramid honeycomb. Common applications for business jet interiors include core material for first-class seating pods, cabin walls and ceilings, service-class dividers, seatbacks, and tray tables.

Other LAST-A-FOAM® core materials include flame-retardant rigid foam core that exhibits a high strength-to-weight ratio and is resistant to water absorption, most chemicals, and solvents. RF-2200, in particular, is a low-density dielectric polyurethane foam ideal for applications where an RF-transparent, low-loss material is required.

CUSTOM-MOLDED PARTS      

General Plastics’ flexible built-to-print molded parts have been part of the aviation industry for over 45 years. The company’s high-capacity production facility enables it to scale production from small runs to specialty parts to ongoing, high-volume parts programs for OEMs and Tier 1 and Tier 2 parts programs. Common applications include overhead panels, glare shields, gap seals, trim pieces and seat pads. The molded parts are manufactured based on customer specifications and are made with a flame-retardant, self-skinning flexible polyurethane foam material that meets FAR 25.853 standards.
