Sabic’s material raises the bar for rail seats
Lexan FST3403

SABIC’S Innovative Plastics business says its Lexan FST3403 (flame-smoke-toxicity) polycarbonate (PC) copolymer is the first thermoplastic solution for rail seating applications to meet the strictest fire safety requirements under the CEN/TS 45445 standard.

Now commercial a full two years before this European standard goes into effect, the Lexan copolymer – developed specifically for seat back shells and side covers – achieved the highest possible hazard level rating (HL3) under CEN/TS 45445-2 R5.
