Vaupell and Trexel have partnered and formed a collaboration agreement to develop and advance MuCell Microcellular Foam moulding for weight reduction in aircraft interiors. 

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Trexel to develop the MuCell process using high temperature aircraft grades of engineering resins,” said Mike Hamm, VP of Aerospace and Defence for Vaupell. “We have been focused on strategies to bring weight reduction solutions to the aircraft cabin interior. We believe MuCell Microcellular Foam is one of the most promising technologies offering weight reduction and increased design freedom for OEM and Tier 1 integrators of aircraft interiors,” said Hamm.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to bring the benefits of significant light-weighting, design freedom and outstanding part performance inherent in the MuCell process to the world’s premier supplier of plastic components for aircraft interiors,” said Brent Strawbridge, VP of North American Sales and Marketing for Trexel. “We understand from experience working with our global partners in the automotive industry that every pound saved is precious in terms of fuel economy, and we look forward to working in partnership with Vaupell to bring that same performance to aerospace applications,” said Strawbridge.
