Armacell Benelux SA (Thimister-Clermont, Belgium) is featuring its structural PET foam core product family and two technical presentations at CAMX 2014. Emphasized in the Armacell Benelux booth will be ArmaFORM PET, a line of polyethylene therephthalate (PET)-based structural foam cores used in sandwich constructions for the building and construction, rail, road transportation, marine and wind turbine markets. Features of ArmaFORM PET include good fatigue properties, very good temperature stability compared with most other foam cores and compatibility with all resins and manufacturing methods. Other benefits include a closed cell structure that helps ensure minimal humidity absorption and reduces the risk of physical degradation. The ArmaFORM PET product family comprises three grades, each of them with specific characteristics: the standard grade PET AC; the flame-retardant PET FR and PET GR, made with 100 percent recycled PET, for highly ecological concepts.
In the conference, business development manager B&C Henri Chapelle will present, “PET Core Materials for Structural Sandwich Application in Building and Construction.” General manager technical service Stefan Reuterlov will present, “Development of Durable Train Floor Concept Compliant with EN 45545.”
