The Effects of Silicone

SilFX is a non-petroleum based open-cell silicone foam that enables thinner seat cushions while eliminating the need for fire-blocking and providing lasting passenger comfort.

Designing Sustainable Solutions:

Silfx silicone foam, used as a top comfort pad, prolongs the life of the cushion, allowing passengers to experience consistent comfort throughout the cushion's life cycle.

Seat designers are able to design thinner seat constructions whichreduce cabin weight and increase passenger room without sacrificing comfort or cushion life.

Airlines benefit from a longer-lasting, comfortable cushion, reducing the costs of refurbishment and downtime while increasing passenger statisfaction.
