Boltaron Performance Products (BPP), LLC has joined forces with SABIC Innovative Plastics to create new aesthetic choices for Lexan XHR6000 sheet, under the brand Boltaron 9915 FSTH sheet. The new sheet products are perfectly suited for aircraft interiors and comply with flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) requirements and the Ohio State University (OSU) 65/65 standard. Also, decorative effects and textures offered by Boltaron go well together with those provided by SABIC Innovative Plastics' Lexan XHR6000 sheet. The new sheets can be applied in aircraft applications include seating, cockpit linings, windows surrounds, door shrouds, and other interior components.
The newly developed sheets by BPP and SABIC Innovative Plastics address the needs of designers in search for colors and surface finishes that are difficult to produce using standard sheet extrusion. The lamination process by BPP makes it possible to provide special finishes economically and in small batches, as per an executive with SABIC IP. Meeting the compliance of both the OSU current standard along with the new yet-to-come new 55/55 requirement, Lexan XHR6000 sheet makes manufacturers ready for the future of aircraft applications and saves time while not having to obtain relaxations from OEMs for non-compliant materials.
