SABIC showcases advanced thermoplastic materials and manufacturing processes at Aircraft Interiors Expo

The progression of ‘light weighting’ aircraft components is a vital enabler in allowing airlines globally to minimize costs and reduce maintenance and refurbishment cycles, while maintaining the highest levels of safety excellence, design flexibility and improved passenger experience. Harper Engineering Stow Bin Latch Cover made with SABIC’s ULTEM™ polyetherimide (PEI) resin, a key constituent of TenCate Cetex® TC1000 Premium.The progression of ‘light weighting’ aircraft components is a vital enabler in allowing airlines globally to minimize costs and reduce maintenance and refurbishment cycles, while maintaining the highest levels of safety excellence, design flexibility and improved passenger experience. Advanced thermoplastic composites are an emerging solution for such applications. Widespread adoption of thermoplastic composites depends on new material technologies, upscaling of efficient production processes and expert application know-how. SABIC is focusing heavily in all three areas.
