Boltaron to increase cabin thermoplastics production


Boltaron has announced that it intends to open a new extrusion line in the third quarter of 2018, in order to increase manufacturing capacity and help strengthen the company’s market share in the aerospace thermoplastic materials sector.

The extrusion line – the company’s fourth – will be a dedicated facility for producing the Boltaron 9000 Series of thermoplastic materials, designed for impact resistance and thermoformability, and available in a range of thicknesses, textures, and decorative effects. The new line will be designed for short production runs and fast changeover times.

”We are taking all of the technology that we’ve learned over the years, which has previously been incorporated into our existing lines, and designing it into this new state-of-the -art line,” said Kevin Asti, Boltaron’s GM and VP of operations. “We’ve been training our operations team for the past nine months in anticipation of the line starting up.”

The facility marks an investment in extrusion equipment and staff, including an automated, triple-capacity blending system that supports the extrusion lines.
