General Plastics Manufacturing Company, manufacturer of aerospace-grade rigid foam core materials and build-to-print polyurethane foam products will be at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition on October 22 – 24, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV, Booth #C11434.

General Plastics manufactures rigid foam board materials to demanding physical property and flammability requirements for interior aerospace parts. LAST-A-FOAM® FR-3800 FST complies with various fire safety regulations, such as Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) flame and smoke regulations, aircraft manufacturer toxicity requirements, the Ohio State University (OSU) 65/65 heat release requirements, as well as the European Nation’s REACH regulation. It is a halogen-free polyurethane foam core which is an ideal alternative to thermoplastics foams and phenolic impregnated aramid honeycomb. Common applications for business jet interiors include core material for first class seating pods, cabin walls and ceilings, service-class dividers, seat backs, and tray tables.

Other LAST-A-FOAM® core materials include flame-retardant rigid foam core that exhibits high strength-to-weight ratio and is resistant to water absorption, most chemicals and solvents. RF-2200 in particular, is a low-density dielectric polyurethane foam ideal for applications where an RF-transparent, low-loss material is required.

General Plastics’ flexible built-to-print molded parts have been part of the aviation industry for over 45 years. The company’s high-capacity production facility enables it to scale production from small runs to specialty parts to ongoing, high-volume parts programs for OEMs and Tier 1 and Tier 2 parts programs. Common applications include overhead panels, glare shields, gap seals, trim pieces and seat pads. The molded parts are manufactured based on customer specifications and are made with flame-retardant, self-skinning flexible polyurethane foam material that meets FAR 25.853 standards.
