New adhesives for aerospace interiors 27 March 2018

The newly developed Aetotak range by Chemique Adhesives includes a variety of solvent-based and water-based adhesives that are ideally suited for use in the manufacture of aircraft seat covers and cushions. 

The Aerotak range includes a variety of flammable and non-flammable formulations suitable for style pad manufacturing. They offer convenient, versatile and easy to use options for bonding combinations of fabric, leather, foam, e-leather and scrim materials into style pads utilising a hot press stamping method.

Another high-performance product available is a foam and fabric adhesive, designed for aircraft seat fabrication, bonding all grades of non-polystyrene foams, including fire-retardant types. This results in a soft glue line, with a strong bond that is extremely versatile.

All of the adhesives in the Aerotak range meet the stringent flammability certification requirements of CS 25.853(a) Amdt.16 App.F Pt.I(a)(1)(ii) & (b)(4).

At this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo, Chemique Adhesives, a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative adhesive products and systems, will be showcasing the Aerotak range of products.

The show will be held at the Hamburg Messe and Congress Centre from 10th – 12th April, and visitors to the Chemique stand – 4UD71 – will have the opportunity to discover the capabilities and benefits of Aerotak adhesives. Demonstrations of foam-to-foam bonding will be provided throughout the show in an on stand spray booth. 

Throughout the show, experts from Chemique will be also available on the stand to demonstrate and answer questions about the company’s new products, to discuss individual requirements, and to provide advice on the selection and use of adhesives for applications in the aerospace sector.
