Durable, lightweight PC sheet homes in on aircraft interiors


Polycarbonate (PC) sheet available in clear and lightweight options will reportedly help provide long-awaited solutions to airlines' quests for differentiated cabin interior designs while also helping to take out significant weight, resulting in a more fuel efficient aircraft.

Available from Sabic as clear Lexan XHR2000 sheet and Lexan Light F6L300 sheet, design engineers will reportedly benefit from these lightweight, durable materials which can help to reduce system costs, offer ease of fabrication and comply with the industry's strict regulatory standards.
