AAR Composites has a new line of Fiberglas-skinned flat panels for business jet cabinetry that it says feature twice the skin peel strength without adding weight.

According to the company, the new flat panels for interior cabinets and credenzas use a phenolic resin formulation that has shown a 10-percent increase in bending properties.

Also, the surface finish is ready for paint, which reduces labor for the cabinet maker, said Tim Dumbauld, v-p and general manager at the Illinois company’s Clearwater, Fla. composites fabrication facility.

In other news, the company has received FAA certification of its new interior design for the Sikorsky S-92 fleet of offshore utility aircraft. The first interior was delivered earlier this year.
