Boltaron® high performance materials are engineered to maintain their quality appearance for a long lifetime of use. Whether used for airplane seat parts, which need to withstand passenger abuse and rigorous daily cleaning practices, or for other applications in the medical, equipment manufacturing or architectural fields with similar cleanability requirements, SIMONA Boltaron is committed to providing materials that stay looking great and last as long as you need them.
SIMONA Boltaron relies on the CDC to provide the best guidelines for disinfecting hard surface materials and recommends that you clean the surface following regular protocols before the disinfecting process using the following steps.
Many types of adhesives can be used to glue or adhere Boltaron materials to a substrate. An in-house study was performed to see which adhesives created a proper bond when adhered to a specific substrate.
Types of adhesives that can be used include 2 part acrylics, contact cement, cyanoacrylates, foam acrylic tape, 2 part polyurethane, instant adhesives, multi-purpose cement, solvent based and structural adhesives. SIMONA Boltaron does not recommend the use of epoxy.
Boltaron materials can be adhered to:
Boltaron sheet can be stored indefinitely and has no shelf life, provided that it is stored under proper conditions. Proper storage conditions are critical to ensure properties are maintained and are not compromised.
Proper Storage Conditions Include the Following:
If evidence of moisture is seen in a sheet stored for a long period of time, it may be necessary to dry prior to thermoforming.
Boltaron materials are engineered to be inherently impact and scratch resistant. However, over a lifetime of use abusive applications, they may withstand dents or imperfections in the material’s surface.
Plastic repair systems such as SATTO® SA20-21 can be used safely on Boltaron materials to recover damaged parts in aircraft interior cabins and other applications. For more information on SATTO repair systems, visit https://satto.aero/.
