Fire Rated High Impact Sheet
Boltaron 9815E proprietary thermoplastic alloy offers greater impact resistance than competitive 6565-rated PVC/Acrylic sheet, making it an ideal material from which to thermoform high-performance interior components of commercial, military and private aircraft.

The sheet exhibits Izod impact resistance of 5.0 ft lbs/in (265 J/m), compared with 3.0 ft lbs/in (159 J/m) for alternative 65/65-compliant sheet, significantly improving the durability of aircraft interiors.

It is also said to offer other exceptional physical properties, extreme formability and inclusion-free surface quality.

Typical applications include class dividers, dashboard enclosures, galley and lavatory components, video screen bezels, personal service units, seat parts, sidewall panels, tray tables, window shades, air ducts, bulkhead laminates, light housings, window reveals and moldings.

The sheet is offered in unlimited colors and in seven surface textures, in lengths to 120” (3048 mm), widths to 48” (1524 mm), thicknesses from .040 to .250” (1.02 to 6.35 mm) and in custom blank sizes.

“Sheet products developed to meet the stringent 6565 fire rating must typically sacrifice impact resistance to do so, but the 9815E sheet retains outstanding impact qualities compared with competitive 6565-rated material,” says Boltaron Director, Adam Mellen.

The company produces over 20 grades of fire rated sheet products for specialized aircraft interior applications.
