Reducing the weight of interior aircraft components is paramount to the airline industry. Each pound of weight removed from an aircraft will save as much as 11,500 gallons of fuel annually across a fleet of 600 aircraft. By replacing aluminum in tray table arms, arm rests, and foot rests, airlines could save over $4.5MM per year in fuel costs.

Potential Benefits

  • Excellent FST properties and FAR 25.853 compliant
  • Lighter than aluminum: up to 50% weight savings
  • Greater stiffness to weight and strength to weight ratios compared to aerospace grade diecast aluminum

Potential Applications

  • Seating brackets
  • Structural supports
  • Tray table arms
  • Arm rests
  • Foot rests
  • Galley applications
