3M and Safran Cabin are bringing together their strengths and technologies in a partnership. Known for its multiplatform technologies and efforts in the fight against COVID-19, 3M will provide technologies to help design cleaner aircraft cabin interiors for ‘Travel Safe` – in a joint initiative of Safran Interior companies to verifiably elevate the hygiene of aircraft interiors.
Safran will certify 3M technology that enhances cleaning and protection features of aircraft cabin equipment and provides the capability to mitigate or improve the removal of bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
"Clean interiors are an industry imperative, and we have with 3M an innovative partner and expert in cleaning, disinfection and protection, who can blend the latest in clean technology with the specialized plastics, decors, and composites used in aircraft interiors," said Norman Jordan, CEO of Safran Cabin.
The partnership will leverage the research capability of both companies to realize a shared vision for seamless, safe and stress-free travel. It`s expected that these new aerospace materials will be available in 2021.
