Jamco America had an aesthetic problem with a material it had chosen for its passenger seating. It seemed impossible to find a sealant that would match the metallic rose gold material owing to color changes that depend on lighting. A previous attempt had been made by mixing a pigment with the sealant that the airline had been using, but it subsequently made the sealant ineffective and also voided its guarantee.
Adhesives and sealants company Forgeway, makers of the Formosa Colors range of sealants, was approached with the problem. The company found a solution in the form of a bespoke metallic pigment combined with Forgeway’s Formosa crystal polymer base, resulting in a product that matched perfectly. In addition, the sealant complied with airline safety codes governing potentially flammable materials. The creation of the bespoke sealant is in line with Forgeway’s philosophy of creating products to meet the specific needs of its clients.
