For safety reasons, only flame-retardant materials may be used in aerospace applications. 

Evonik offers VESTAMID® flame-retardant compounds for extruded cable duct covers on the floor of the passenger cabin in airliners and in cargo aircraft. These use non-migrating, halogen- and phosphorus-free flame retardants and thus meet the flame retardancy requirements of FAR 25.853 and ABD 0031.

Airbus has approved VESTAMID® X7229 and X7167 molding compounds on the basis of the criteria defined in:

  • FAR 25.853 (fire test)
  • material specifications AIMS 04-01-004A and AIMS 04-01-004B
