SABIC Features New Solutions and Design Services at Aircraft Interiors Hamburg

To inspire aircraft industry seating tiers to take a fresh look at seat design and fabrication, SABIC licensed a Studio Gavari design for a sleek and ergonomically advanced economy class seat. The seat was printed using filaments made from SABIC’s ULTEM™ 9085 resin, which is compatible with 3D printing and meets FAR 25.853 flame, smoke and toxicity requirements and OEM-specific heat release standards. The use of 3D printing enabled the rapid prototyping of the Studio Gavari design without the expense of tooling, resulting in an economy class seat with less than 15 components, demonstrating the potential for part consolidation and manufacturing efficiency.Hamburg, Germany, March 27, 2017 - As airlines seek the opportunity to reduce weight, differentiate their brands, minimize costs and enhance their customers’ flying experiences, they look for versatile materials, creative design options and global support from suppliers who understand these desired outcomes.
