Supracor’s Stimulite honeycomb for aircraft seating was a finalist for the coveted Crystal Cabin Award for innovation in aircraft cabins, specifically in the category of passenger comfort. The Crystal Cabin Award is the only international award for innovation in aircraft cabins.

Supracor’s innovation, Stimulite honeycomb is a thin, lightweight alternative to traditional foam seat cushions. A flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that has memory, Stimulite self adjusts to each passenger, providing uniform weight distribution and also ventilation. Its cellular matrix is more than 90 percent open space with less than 10 percent material in contact with the body. The “footprint” of the cells’ edges combined with their flexing action promotes circulation, especially important on long flights.
