SGPPL aircraft interior solutions

Saint-Gobain showcases critical connections solutions for optimum aircraft interior performance

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) introduces critical connections solutions for aircraft interiors, including floor-to-floor applications, aircraft monuments, and galleys. These critical connections solutions are customized to meet the exact specifications required for safe and reliable aircraft interior performance.

The solutions incorporate a wide range of high-performance silicone sealing technologies (both extruded and molded) dedicated for galleys, cabin baggage bins, toilets, emergency exits, dampening plates, crew rest grounds, and furnishing panel seals. These technologies guarantee interior components are watertight, airtight, and light-tight through the incorporation of fabrics and proprietary SGPPL coatings.

"Saint-Gobain is world-renowned for its engineering expertise and customer service. We partner with aircraft manufacturers to deliver customized solutions that meet precise design and application specifications," says Nicolas Poussineau, Global Market Leader, Aerospace at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. "We can provide critical connections solutions developed with Saint-Gobain's advanced materials to component suppliers for inclusion in galleys and monuments, and finished components directly to aircraft manufacturers."

SGPPL has a broad base of experience in polymeric, elastomeric, metal and composite products, applications and materials for use in aerospace applications. Seals can be individually hand-fabricated, automatically molded, fabric-reinforced, or bonded to metallic components. All SGPPL solutions fulfill the highest manufacturing standards, quality control and the latest environmental legislation.

Solution Development & Production Process

SGPPL works with its clients through a 5-step process to develop and manufacture a customized critical connections solution to match their needs:

1. Knowledge and Assessment Meeting: The SGPPL team first meets with suppliers and manufacturers to identify potential problems and understand specific requirements.

2. Review: The team then performs an on-site study of the application to ensure information accuracy.

3. Global Collaboration Session: The team taps into Saint-Gobain's resources and expertise around the world to share ideas and develop a solution that meets performance criteria.

4. Solution Presentation: The team formally introduces the proposed solution to the client and then holds a thorough review to further refine and perfect the final version.

5. Approval and Manufacture: The critical connections solution is approved by the client and is then manufactured to exact specifications for delivery regionally or globally.

The result is a tailor-made critical connections solution that supports aircraft performance and strengthens the customer brand. These solutions include highly-specialized precision seals and interior parts for galleys, cabin baggage bins, toilets, emergency exits, dampening plates, crew rest grounds, and furnishing panel seals, among others.
