WITH LOW SMOKE, TOXICITY, BURNING RATE, CAN PLASTICS FILL AIRCRAFT AND TRANSIT NEEDS

Government pressure, in the form of guidelines, proposed rules and actual requirements, is forcing companies building airplanes, subways and buses to look for materials that provide better burning characteristics. A number of plastics producers either have announced or are planning to announce grades that are substantial improvements over existing ones for panelling, seating and glazing. The question is-are these plastics adequate? Beyond this question, extensive research in many areas such as toxicity may change existing requirements and thus again the status of materials being considered.
