The world is growing closer together. People travel to another continent on a business trip, and to another city for a shopping spree. Global air traffic is on the increase, as is the number of aircraft that take off every day.

Aircraft construction materials have always had to meet the most stringent requirements, whether for huge commercial airliners or small sailplanes. They must withstand extremes of temperature, protect against UV radiation, be tough and weather-resistant. On top of all that, they have to weigh as little as possible. One important target is to cut fuel consumption by reducing weight.PLEXIGLAS® aircraft construction materials help to promote developments in all these fields.
