ACME Mills, USA has joined forces with Quantum Materials, LLC to launch the newest level of fabric innovation designed for aircraft seating applications – Comfort Zone powered by QUANTUM™ ZXT technology. This revolutionary B-surface fabric technology is designed to provide long-term enhanced comfort to passengers, and reduce or eliminate the need for foam commonly used in airline seating.

Comfort Zone has been engineered with QUANTUM ZXT technology providing the airline industry with a progressive alternative compared to traditional seating. Utilizing this proprietary technology, the fabric can provide customized levels of ergonomically correct support throughout the seat, ultimately enhancing comfort to passengers. As a supporting B-Surface application, Comfort Zone reduces the amount of foam needed and can eliminate the need for springs, wires, clips and insulators that have historically been used.

Initial testing has shown that this new fabric can reduce weight by as much as 8 pounds per seat or a total of 1,512 pounds [Total estimated weight savings based on a 190-seat configuration on a commercial airplane]. In addition to weight reduction, and depending upon the size of the plane, there is the potential to add more than 10 seats without redesigning the interior cabin due to space savings. The fabric can be engineered or treated with the various performance requirements needed to pass standard FAA regulations.
