Antistatic vs. Static-Dissipative vs. Conductive vs. Insulative Materials Materials are classified as antistatic vs. static-dissipative vs. conductive vs. insulative based on how quickly electricity moves through them — or their resistance to electric charges, also known as surface resistivity. This classification is used in environments where electrostatic discharge (ESD) is known to harm people and […]
How do you choose the best thermal insulation material? We’ll discuss the different types of thermal insulation products and how to find the right heat insulation material for your project.
Thermal Blanket vs. Acoustic Blanket Solutions HVAC, ancillary building system equipment and aircraft components all generate large amounts of both sound and heat. If they are not properly controlled, both of these conditions can greatly disturb the comfort, productivity and safety of building occupants. What is the solution? Acoustic blanket and thermal blanket systems. In […]
Choosing the right healthcare fabrics for your products is an important decision. Explore the uses for medical fabrics and learn what characteristics are essential in the fabric textile products you select.
UV curing is a fast, consistent and environmentally friendly alternative to more traditional thermal curing. But what is UV curing and how does it work? Keep reading to learn about the fastest-drying (and fastest-growing) cure in the industry.
An airplane creates a lot of noise. Soundproofing materials were created to combat this issue. Sound absorbers and sound barriers both reduce unwanted sound, but they do so through vastly different means.
Fire retardant material is not fireproof, but it does resist ignition. While no material is entirely fireproof, high-quality fire retardant materials can help slow the spread of fires, providing precious escape time in an emergency.
For fire retardant materials to be certified for use in an aircraft, they need to be thoroughly tested. This is done through the use of the following fire retardant material flammability regulations and testing methods.
Aircraft interior materials play an important role in the health, wellness and safety of passengers and crew. When choosing your materials, there are a few considerations to take into account.
The aviation industry has come together over the years to maximize safety. Regulations and testing of aircraft interior materials are now based on survival and evacuation.
Flexible flooring offers durability and increased efficiency in terms of installation, something rigid flooring options simply can’t offer. Find out more about why flexible flooring is the smart choice for transportation applications.
When choosing fabrics for the aviation industry, you need fire-retardant materials that provide safety, noise reduction and anti-static control. While in the air, passengers should be comfortable, but more importantly, safe.
