General Plastics Manufacturing Co. of Tacoma, Wash., is getting favorable reception for a lightweight rigid polyurethane foam core. Customers include aircraft interior specialist GAL Aerospace Corp. of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec, and equipment manufacturer Bombardier Inc. of Montreal.
General Plastics received validation of its flammability test protocols and used the quality achievement in developing its Last-A-Foam-brand FST-3800 performance core series. The product line was introduced in late 2015 and complies with Ohio State University 65/65 heat release standard, the Federal Aviation Administration's flame and smoke regulations and aircraft manufacturer toxicity requirements.
