Diab has signed a long term contract with Diehl Aircabin to supply its Divinycell F foam core for cabin applications.

The company says that Divinycell F can minimize the need for labor intensive and putty, sanding, and sweeping steps. Featuring closed cells and minimal water absorption, Divinycell F also eliminates the need for edge fill. Many honeycomb panel designs now incorporate Divinycell F as an edge close-out.

Divinycell F can also withstand high temperatures and exceeds requirements for aircraft interiors with regards to fire, smoke, toxicity (FST), and OSU heat release.

Divinycell is used in aircrft seats, as lavatory interiors, galleys, luggage bins, cabin air distribution and window frames for the Airbus 350 XWB and other aircrafts.

‘It has been a pleasure to work with Diehl, and we are very proud of being a supplier and partner with Diehl Aircabin,’ said Lennart Thalin, Diab Executive Group vice president sales & segments.
