High-impact strength, low-heat release fly well in aerospace applications


Boltaron 9815E PVC/acrylic thermoplastic alloy offers greater impact resistance than competitive 65/65-rated sheets made from the same resins, making it an ideal material from which to thermoform high-performance interior components of commercial, military and private aircraft, according to Adam Mellen, director at the product's supplier Boltaron (Newcomerstown, OH).

The sheet exhibits Izod impact resistance of 5.0 ft lbs/in (265 J/m), compared with 3.0 ft lbs/in (159 J/m) for alternative 65/65-compliant sheet, significantly improving the durability of aircraft interiors. It is also said to offer other exceptional physical properties, extreme formability and inclusion-free surface quality.
