Experience ZOTEK® F at NBAA-BACE 2023

Zotefoams to showcase ZOTEK® F high-performance foams range at NBAA-BACE 2023, offering weight savings of up to 70%, with no compromise on luxury

Zotefoams plc, producer of the world’s lightest closed cell crosslinked foams, helps reduce the carbon footprint of the aviation industry by offering a lightweight product that is adaptable to many applications in and around the cabin

ZOTEK® F high-performance foam is the ideal range of advanced materials for aircraft interiors, offering weight savings of up to 70% compared to traditional materials and reducing carbon footprint without compromising on comfort or performance. The range continues to grow in popularity due to its versatility – it is available in a range of grades and is highly customisable for applications in the cabin and behind the panels.

Produced from high grade polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), ZOTEK F’s physical performance is compatible with a wide range of forming methods, allowing the production of complex shapes. Its safety credentials are second to none, achieving outstanding ratings in fire, smoke and toxicity tests, with inherent durability and UV-resistance.

ZOTEK F HT is designed for behind the panel applications, including Environmental Control Systems (ECS) ducting, flex hoses and sleeves. Its strength, durability and consistency also produce exceptional high-performance in window seal applications.
ZOTEK F OSU offers ultimate versatility inside the cabin, for functional and aesthetic applications.  With grades from Flexible to Extra-Rigid (XR) ZOTEK F OSU is at the forefront of developments in aviation and spacecraft cabins. 

Within the aircraft interior, applications include First and Premium class seat pods, covered decorative and non-decorative panels, soft-touch trim as well as rigid armrests, consoles, tray tables, footwells, stowage lockers and carpet underlay.

Zotefoams Director of HPP Products, James Bridges, says

“ ZOTEK F is a super-light, super-luxe and incredibly versatile option for business jet interiors.

Post-pandemic and in an era of carbon reduction, its benefits are even more apparent: in terms of weight reduction it can contribute to lower fuel burn and increased range, while its potential as the ‘secret ingredient’ in bespoke interiors knows no limits.

ZOTEK F is increasingly popular as a component of soft-touch panels, either fixed or quick-release for livery changes, and we look forward to impressing visitors to NBAA with the range of luxury finishes we’ll be exhibiting on our booth. “

Zotefoams is exhibiting at stand C11322 in the Central Hall at NBAA-BACE 2023, taking place from 17-19 October.
