Can polymers rescue the Mile High Club?

Polyolefins, Styrenics, Technology

Maybe Singapore airlines has got the wrong end of the stick by trying to ban first class passengers in their new cabins in the sky from indulging in a little hanky panky.
Perhaps the answer is to equip the walls of these private cabins with super sound-absorbing polymers (polyurethanes, maybe?).
Any suggestions from polymer experts out there would be gratefully received and I’ll pass them onto the airline.
