Rail Seating

Whether for luxury or hard commuter use, rail seating increasingly calls for new shapes to provide comfort and optimum seating density. At the same time, designs must meet a growing array of safety issues, durability and maintenance needs. 

LEXAN™ and ULTEM™ resin, sheet and film continue to help designers create the next generation in sturdy, aesthetically pleasing rail seating, including alternatives to traditional thermoset manufacturing. New forms, thinner profiles, lighter weight – all are important, and SABIC can help provide the formability and strength required. Resistance to heavier loads helps to improve the longevity of seating, helping to reduce operational costs.

PERFORMANCE CONSIDERATIONS:

  • Weight reduction
  • Strength & stiffness
  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Flame, smoke, toxicity compliancy 
  • Design freedom
  • Ductility
  • Recyclability
  • Good processability

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS:

  • Seat cladding
  • Seat back shells
  • Tray tables 
  • Arm rests
  • Metal replacement
