TECANYL VH2 black

PPE plastic for Aircraft Interiors

TECANYL VH2 black is a specially formulated PPE plastic (Polyphenylene ether) designed for use in commercial aircraft interior design. This PPE has been tested to and passed the requirements for FAR 25.853 for aircraft interior materials, as well as specific customer specifications for aircraft interior cabin plastic products. The material's favorable flame and smoke generation characteristics demonstrated in independent flammability tests, make it suitable for applications in aircraft interior spaces such as the galley, bathrooms, and interior cabin space, and even in the flight deck itself. Also available in grey as a custom run item.
