In a previous post, we discussed Chemical Compatibility with Thermoplastics in the aerospace industry, with a focus on commercial aviation and our test methods and results. Now, we want to expand on the issue to explore the suppliers we have worked with to ensure our end users (airlines) have access to the best combination of components and cleaning products to provide their customers with a superior passenger experience and to ensure component/system reliability.
Several suppliers to the aerospace industry have worked with us to ensure that our cleaning chemicals are compatible with their aircraft materials and components. We have worked with Recaro, Sekisui SPI, Boeing, Embraer, Rockwell Collins, and Lonseal, among others. Our testing evaluated both the structural and visual impact our cleaning chemicals had (if any) on the various thermoplastic components (see previous post on testing for a detailed explanation of our methods).
