CARY, N.C. (Nov. 1)—Lord Corp. is joining forces with a Brazilian aerospace company and an interior supplier to isolate interior cabins in a new concept in midsized executive jets. Lord and interior supplier Nordam Group Inc. are working jointly to handle sound abatement for the Legacy, the first Brazilian-made executive jet aircraft produced by aerospace giant Embraer Aviation International, headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Among the products Lord and Nordam will furnish are elastomeric isolators used to attach interior sidewall and ceiling panels; rubber and metal rod ends needed to attach interior boundaries and bulkheads; isolators to mount credenzas, cabinets, galleys and lavatories at the base of the aircraft floor; and isolators used for smaller interior panels, a company spokeswoman said. Final assembly of the Legacy, systems integration and testing are carried out at Embraer's aircraft manufacturing facilities in Sao Paulo.
