Both of these new TPEs, Flexalloy 89504-90 and -90FR, have 90 Shore A hardness, are UL recognized for Oil I and II as insulation, and meet requirements of the VW1 (UL 83) flame test. The FR grade provides a greater level of flame resistance and has UL recognition for meeting the 720-hr sunlight resistance test in all colors.
The selected ceramic coating will be painted on composite panels to make test specimens and those specimens need to undergo a flame test to verify that the coating materials pass the FAA requirement and an oven test to show that the painted composite panels can withstand the engine cowling temperature (220[degrees]C) for a certain period of time.
