Innovative R72 product added to epsotech aerospace range

The Group's UK plant, epsotech UK Ltd., has successfully developed the new R72 engineered polymer sheet. R72 is a lightweight, tough, durable and flame-retardant sheet material for thermoforming which is particularly suitable for aircraft seating applications.

R72 meets the stringent JAR25.853 (d) specification (ex HCl) and raises the Group's aircraft application capabilities to a new level.

"We are delighted to have developed and added the R72 sheet to our product range - an already expansive range, which will now become even more robust." explains Greg Shaw, Managing Director of epsotech UK Ltd. The UK facility has traditional links to the aerospace sector, with its approved and already well-known R57 sheet product, which meets the JAR25.853 (a) specification. However, with R72 meeting the exceptionally demanding JAR25.853 (d) specification (ex HCl), epsotech has increased their offering and opened up a more diverse and expansive aerospace product range. "The R72 product innovation is an important milestone on our growth path – I am particularly proud of our strong competences in the aerospace supply industry," summarises Matthias von Buzay, CEO of epsotech Group

Meeting higher specification JAR25.853 (d)

Greg Shaw: "The addition of R72 means that we are now capable of serving the well-established and innovative aircraft market in a more comprehensive manner. Our new ability to meet the higher specification criteria, beyond our R57 product, will strengthen our position as a reputable European supplier who can meet our customers' needs with short lead times, minimal order quantities and with an excellent technical team to back up specific requirements."

Available in an extensive range of colours and finishes, the modified PVC sheet R72, is easy to clean and resistant to staining, scratching and a wide range of concentrated chemicals. The lightweight and tough material is fire retardant and complies with the low smoke and heat release criteria.
