These are GREAT
looking Armrests! They are made from Boltaron which is a plastic similar to ABS but tougher for aircraft use. Boltaron® products consist of a
broad range of PVC, PVC-alloy, and CPVC film and sheet products in fire rated,
ultra high impact, corrosion resistant, and economy grades. You can paint
the armrests with anything you can use on ABS plastic. To glue cloth and
leather on, we recommend any type of contact cement. These
panels were also made
lightweight and at the same time, strong enough for the cockpit occupants.
A bit of custom trimming is required to make them mate up with your particular
bird. They can be painted or upholstered. If you desire to get them
upholstered, we recommend that you contact an upholstery shop. They would
be more experienced in making the material lay down correctly. This is a
bit of a challenge due to the acute angles in the armrest area. See the pics above done by the experts.
NOTE: These panels do not meet the flammability rating for normal category
aircraft. Boltaron 1165 does meet a UL 94 V-0 Rating. The manufacturer only recommends these panels for experimental
aircraft. Also, beware of the cement you choose. Look at it's
flammability rating. We do not recommend specific products and are unaware
of the best products to use. Upholstery shops are your best source for
The Armrest Panels will be available sometime soon. We are
working with another supplier. Please check back to see if they
are available. Sorry for the inconvenience.
