In response to a problem encountered by one of its aerospace clients, Forgeway has added a custom colour to their Formoa adhesive and sealant range.
In May this year, the leading industrial adhesive and sealant manufacturer, was contacted by Jamco America with a sample of material used on their interior seats – they were having trouble matching it to a sealant. The colour was a metallic rose gold. Metallic colours are notoriously hard to match as their colour changes depending on lighting. A previous solution was far from perfect, mixing paint with a clear sealant and thus voiding any guarantees from the supplier and rendering the sealant ineffective.
Through Forgeway’s experience in creating their Formoa Colours range they found the solution - adding a bespoke metallic pigment to the Formoa crystal polymer base, resulted in a perfect match.
I’m patting myself on the back for finding what no-one else could – a company willing to go the extra mile to provide exactly the product we need no matter how precise we needed it. Our customers, program managers, and production staff demand and expect quality from our aircraft interior products. We also operate under strict guidelines regarding the use of adhesives, sealants, and other possibly flammable consumable materials.
