Saber basic innovative plastic ultem* resin improves stability and rapid thermal forming ability for new composite aviation panels
saber basic innovative plastic recently announced that the company has launched a new breakthrough technology for manufacturing semi-structured aircraft interior trim parts with high-end ultem* polyetherimide (PEI) resin after years of development. This new type of ULTEM composite aviation board (CAB) plate is jointly developed and produced by saber basic innovative plastic and leading specialty paper manufacturer Crane Co., which is an ideal material to replace thermosetting aramid fiber reinforced honeycomb composites. The ULTEM cab sheet can not only be rapidly hot formed, with a wide range of high-end performance, recyclable, but also has the possibility of surface renovation with newly developed decorative film materials to extend the service life. 6. After fluorosilicone resin, it can also meet the industry requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). At present, a large airline company is trying this plate. Saber basic innovative plastics, combined with crane's expertise, once again provides cost-effective solutions for the global aviation industry
Kim Choate, head of global ULTEM product market for saber basic innovative plastics, said: "With ULTEM cab plate, saber basic innovative plastic and crane have obvious advantages over traditional honeycomb composites in the application of this plate. Not only the large DSC method and YBB method confirm that this batch of polypropylene bottles for oral use are mixed with recycled material, which reduces the manufacturing cycle time and doubles the service life of parts. ULTEM resin has excellent safety performance and light weight, and has been a star product in aircraft interior applications for many years 。 Today, this ULTEM resin and glass fiber reinforced composite board once again proves its outstanding wide application space and form, and provides additional value for the aircraft industry. We believe that ULTEM cab panel will become a new and important standard to measure the interior trim panel. "Dennis Lockyer, vice president of non-woven fabrics and technical materials of Crane Co., said: "Because of the leading position of saber basic innovative plastics' high-performance materials in aircraft interior applications, we chose to work closely with it. Therefore, we also saw the opportunity and space to apply our professional special paper technology in a new way. We want to create an innovative and technologically advanced paper composite, and ULTEM resin is the solution we need. Our cooperation with saber basic innovative plastics is very successful This will help us diversify our product range and target new market opportunities. "
first class thermoplastic composite technology
using advanced thermoplastic materials to replace the traditional thermosetting materials used in Aircraft Interiors has many advantages, such as easy recycling, among which the most significant advantage is to reduce the system cost. Because the aramid honeycomb composite is extremely sensitive to humidity and ultraviolet (UV), the porous edges of the parts must be manually filled and sealed, and this process takes up to 10 hours. On the contrary, ULTEM resin has excellent UV resistance and low moisture absorption, so ULTEM cab sheet parts can be hot formed quickly in a few minutes without secondary finishing. In addition to speeding up the manufacturing cycle time, ULTEM cab can not only meet the requirements of flame retardant, low smoke and non-toxic (FST) required by the industry, but also prolong the service life of the plate and reduce the system cost by changing the surface layer, while the previous aramid honeycomb composites cannot provide these characteristics to customers
ultem cab board has extraordinary FST performance, which is the reason why ULTEM resin is famous. This material exceeds the stringent Ohio State University (OSU) 55/55 standard. In addition, it also has the characteristics of light weight. The average weight of ULTEM cab plate is 1350 g/m2, which can be customized to meet the weight requirements of various parts
the target application fields of this new composite material include side walls, cockpit instrument panels, ceilings, door linings and partitions
