General Plastics has been supplying OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies with flame-retardant foam core materials and custom flexible foam molded parts for aircraft flight decks and interior cabins for over 50 years.

Durable and strong, LAST-A-FOAM® sheet stocks are manufactured using unique chemical formulas producing uniform and consistent physical properties. FR-3800 FST Performance Core series in particular, passes FST/OSU requirements and meets European Union’s REACH standards. An alternative to thermoplastics and honeycomb for core and structural applications, it helps improve aesthetics and reduces costs while meeting stringent fire safety requirements.

General Plastics also offers custom molded parts which are manufactured from our flexible, flame-retardant, self-extinguishing, self-skinning foams. The appropriate foam system can be custom-formulated with physical properties and attributes you desire.
