Fire-blocker for aircraft seating dress covers


At the recent Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas, SABIC’s Innovative Plastics business showcased its co-development efforts with National Nonwovens to create a fire-blocker for all aircraft seating dress covers.

Marketed and sold under the Ultra-Protechtor fire-blocker brand, National Nonwovens developed this new technology by upgrading from aramid to high-performance fibre made from SABIC’s inherently flame-retardant Ultem resin, a polyetherimide (PEI) material. The new product can be used with leather, synthetic leather and woven fabrics.
