Vacuum Thermoforming of Custom Seat Backs for the Aerospace Industry
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Hagans Plastics specializes in providing plastic solutions for a changing industry that include molding, thermoforming and other precision services.
The project highlighted here is for the fabrication of a custom seat back cover that was and is being used by Virgin America. Starting in 2004, one of the most challenging aspects of this particular seat back is the creation of the ultra-high gloss and brilliant white appearance. Only one company was able to provide the material and support needed to allow us to manufacturer these parts and would meet FAR 25.853(d). KYDEX® 6565 material was chosen. Hagans Plastics has been proud to supply Virgin America with the best quality and consistency in its seat backs for over 50 aircraft. The design and choice of colors that Virgin America has used in their seats allows the airline’s guests to enjoy award-winning service in beautifully designed, moodlit cabins that are like living rooms in the sky, and Hagans Plastics is proud to be part of that experience.
Our state-of-the-art thermoforming machines and quality control allow us to be able to exceed your expectations. All items manufactured at Hagans Plastics meet AS 9100 aerospace industry standards as well as ISO 9001 standards.
