BOLTARON® 4385

FAR-Rated High Temperature Resistant Sheet

 

BOLTARON 4330 Seat PArts BOLTARON 4330 Damage Resistant BOLTARON 4330 Electrical Enclosure

Boltaron® 4385 extruded proprietary thermoplastic alloy sheet was developed for higher in-service temperature interior aircraft applications. It meets FAR 25.853(a) test criteria, and its heat deflection temperature exceeds 185°F at 264 psi load (85°C at 1.8 MPa).


Boltaron® 4385, with a 190°F heat deflection temperature, allows parts to meet the operating high temperature requirements of RTCA DO-160 Chapter 4.5.3 as required in Airbus Passenger Seat Installation-Frame Specifications. The material also offers a solid balance of overall performance, high impact strength of 10 ft. lb./in. (534 J/m), and resists abrasion, chemicals and cleaners. In thermoforming, Boltaron® 4385 exhibits exceptionally high consistency with uniform surface appearance and wall thickness integrity even in deep draws and sharp corners.


Boltaron’s unique custom production capabilities also afford designers a comprehensive range of colors and the industry’s widest range of textures for aircraft interior components.

(Note: For aircraft parts larger than 1 sq ft (305 sq mm) requiring an OSU 65/65 rating,.please specify Boltaron® 9815E sheet)
