BOLTARON® 6800E

FAR-Rated High Impact Resistant Sheet for Aircraft Interiors

 
Boltaron® 6800E sheet, extruded from a proprietary thermoplastic alloy, meets stringent FAR 25.850(a) flammability requirements for aircraft interiors. It also satisfies UL 94 V0 flame test criteria. Its resistance to impacts, stains and cleaning chemicals enhances service life of interior components, and in thermoforming, the sheet maintains uniform wall thickness even in deep draws.

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