High impact, thermoplastic sheet specifically formulated to meet low heat release requirements and improve passenger safety. KYDEX® 6565HI was designed to provide material deformation when used in components subjected to the HIC test (Head Injury Criterion) — increasing passenger safety. It meets flammability and smoke development requirements outlined in Federal Aviation Regulations 25.853 paragraphs (a) and (d). Finish:
- Seat parts
- Seatback shells
- Tray tables
- Monitor shrouds
- Bulkhead laminates
- Improved impact properties over traditional thermoplastics for HIC compliance seating requirements
- Reduce cost of compliance by decreasing the total number of expensive and time consuming 16g tests required.
- Increase design freedom to create more complex seat geometries.
- Decrease weight by eliminating the need for heavy reinforcements
- or thick gauges.
- Meets the stringent requirements of FAR 25.853 paragraph (d) in all thicknesses and colours
- Excellent formability and fabrication characteristics
- Processes similar to KYDEX® 6565
- Allows for tight tolerance control
- Available in a wide range of colors
