LSG Sky Chefs is the world"s largest provider of in-flight services. Norduyn is a designer and manufacturer of innovative galley and cabin product solutions for commercial aviation.


The trolleys, launched at the Aircraft Interiors Expo held from May 18 to 20 in Hamburg, Germany, will be on display at SABIC Innovative Plastics" stand and also at Norduyn"s and LSG Sky Chefs" stands Ц feature UV-resistant Ultem resin for the extrusion profiles and door latch, and tough Noryl resin for the frame and other components.


Jointly designed by LSG Sky Chefs and Norduyn, the new full- and half-size trolleys utilize Noryl resin in the frame and critical components to replace metal, thereby slashing weight by up to 40% and reducing the number of parts by a third. This high-tech engineered plastic also provides outstanding non-halogenated flame retardance and enhanced safety with industry-leading flame/smoke/toxicity (FST) performance meeting Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 25.853 requirements. Noryl resin was also selected for its good hydrostability and low density and for its proven track record in a wide and growing range of important aircraft applications.
