Supracor debuts its Stimulite® honeycomb for aircraft seating at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2011
A new and revolutionary alternative to conventional foam cushioning, cushions made from Stimulite provide exceptional comfort at a fraction of the thickness of foam cushions.
A lightweight, anisotropic structure, Stimulite has a honeycomb matrix that is approximately 93 percent air, depending on cell size. Thousands of tiny perforations in the cell walls circulate air both horizontally and vertically to control heat and moisture, keeping passengers more comfortable during their flight. Because of its formidable load bearing capability, seat cushions made from Stimulite can be thinner than foam cushions, giving more head space in the cabin.
Supracor’s patented Stimulite honeycomb is qualified by Boeing and featured in Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner’s crewrest quarters.
One hundred percent recyclable, Stimulite honeycomb is available in various configurations, ranging from soft to firm and single to multiple layers, that can be customized to meet aircraft seat design specifications.
Supracor is the originator of fusion-bonded honeycomb technology, a flexible form of aerospace honeycomb utilized in products that promote the health and safety of people and animals. Initially applied to medical seating and sleep support surfaces for pressure sore prevention, Stimulite honeycomb is the basis of a revolutionary line of personal care products. Supracor’s Stimulite honeycomb can be found in high-performance applications such as military body armor, sports protective equipment and bumpers for amusement park rides. All of Supracor’s products are sustainably made in California’s Silicon Valley from environmentally-friendly materials.
