High-flying flooring uses halogen-free rubber from Lanxess
ERJ staff report (BC)
Leverkusen - With their new Duroflex and Durofloor floor coverings, engineers from rubber expert Metzeler Technical Rubber Systems have developed durable alternatives to the silicone coverings often used up to now.
â€œOutstandingâ€ abrasion resistance and fire protection properties are claimed for the easily bondable non-slip products, which include the halogen-free highly fillable rubber material Levapren from synthetic rubber supplier Lanxess.
Lanxess notes that floor coverings used in long-range airliners must meet a wide range of strict requirements, including safety-related ones. This naturally applies in particular to products for fitting in aircraft galleys.
