Aircraft Expo to showcase BASF's cutting-edge materials

The world's leading chemical company is taking advantage of the 2012 Aircraft Interiors Expo to exhibit its latest new materials and technologies for the aerospace industry
 BASF's latest cutting-edge aviation technology
 
 

Showcasing the cutting-edge of aircraft cabin design and innovations, the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas is the industry’s largest event of its kind, featuring cabin management systems, seating products, soft furnishing and more.

The latest edition of Manufacturing Digital is available now

BASF’s latest materials demonstrate high performance characteristics while compiling with aviation’s stringent criterion, all designed to help aircraft manufacturers increase passenger safety and comfort, combined with lowering costs and weight associated with structural materials, seating components and cabin interiors:

Basotect UL Melamine Foam– ultra-light insulation material offering excellent thermal insulation and sound absorption capabilities, while simulatenously meeting stringent aerospace fire, smoke and toxicity standards. At just six grams per litre (0.37 pounds per cubic feet), it contributes to reducing aircraft weight yet still provides a high protection against noise

Cellasto – microcellular polyurethane elastomer designed to replace the rubber used in shock-absorbing applications by offering progressive load-deflection properties, smaller space requirements, lower weight and superior durability

Dexo Dual Ozone/VOC Catalytic Converter – reduces harmful emissions in aircraft cabin air by removing hydrocarbon compounds responsible for unpleasant odours, i.e. jet fuel during taxing and take-off

Stimulite Cushion (by Supracor Inc, San Jose, CA) – increases passenger comfort and extends the life of the seat, while decreasing the space needed for the seat and lowering weight. Made from BASF’s TPU, the cushion is puncture, tear and abrasion resistant couple with a natural resistance to fungus and microbes

Ultrason E and P– high temperature thermoplastics offering superior heat-resistance and fire, smoke and toxicity properties, as well as being easy to process and recycle. Due to high strength and impact resistance capabilities, the material can be used structurally and offers a strength-to-weight advantage over aluminium

The Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas runs from 25-27 Sep 2012 and is being held at the Washington State Convention Center, Seattle
