Translucent FAR-Rated Fully-Compliant Parts

Custom-routed to specifications in a variety of textures for aircraft interior components. Provides exceptional visual appeal and meets FAA fire and low-toxicity guidelines.

BOLTARON 9916 Translucent Swatches BOLTARON 9916 Transparent Sheet
Boltaron® 9916 is a tinted sheet material that meets FAR 25.853(a) for flammability and FAR 25.853(d) for rate of heat release and smoke density, while meeting ABD0031 (Airbus) and BSS 7239 (Boeing) toxicity specifications. In class dividers and other partitions, the material's light transmitting properties provide partial privacy while creating an attractive, open environment.

A blue tinted material, it is offered in finished parts that are CNC-routed to customer specifications. Surface finish options, available on one or two sides, include Suede, Stipple, Falmouth, and a range of custom finishes from gloss to matte.

Boltaron 9916's notched Izod impact resistance of 5.3 ft-lb/in. (284 J/m) and its rigidity make it ideal for use in large panels and in damage-prone applications in aircraft interiors. The material can also be heat welded, adhesive bonded and mechanically fastened.

The Boltaron impact resistant FAR 25.853(d) rated product family also includes 9815E extruded sheet, 9815M in metallic finishes, 9815D with unlimited decorative patterns; 9815P in the widest range of textures and 9815F film and thin-gauge sheet for two- and three-dimensional laminating, and Boltaron® 9850 with a 50/50 rate of heat release.
