SAN JOSE, CA, March 2, 2012—Engineered materials manufacturer, Supracor, is a finalist for the coveted Crystal Cabin Award for innovation in aircraft cabins, specifically in the category of passenger comfort.
Supracor’s innovation, Stimulite® honeycomb is a thin, lightweight alternative to traditional foam seat cushions. A flexible form of aerospace honeycomb that has memory, Stimulite self adjusts to each passenger, providing uniform weight distribution and also ventilation. Its cellular matrix is more than 90 percent open space with less than 10 percent material in contact with the body. The “footprint” of the cells’ edges combined with their flexing action promotes circulation, especially important on long flights.
The Crystal Cabin Award is the only international award for innovation in aircraft cabins.
A panel of 23 judges from the aviation industry reviewed 58 submissions with 18 products from seven different countries making it to the final cut. There are six different categories for innovation; two other innovations are competing with Stimulite honeycomb in the category of passenger comfort. The six trophies will be presented on March 27, 2012 in association with the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany. For more information, visit www.crystal-cabin-award.com.
Supracor is the originator of flexible, fusion-bonded honeycomb technology utilized in products that promote the health and safety of people and animals. Stimulite honeycomb can also be found in high-performance applications such as fighter jet ejection seats, bullet-proof vests and sports protective equipment. All of Supracor’s products are sustainably made in California from durable materials that are completely recyclable. For more information, visit www.supracor.com.
