ArmaFORM® PET Core are PET-based (polyethylene terephthalate) structural foam cores offered in densities from 65 to 320 kg/m³ and thicknesses from 5 to 150 mm. After its successful introduction into wind turbine composite applications, some ten years ago, PET Core is used today in more than 50,000 rotor blades worldwide. It is steadily finding a growing market in a wide range of composite sandwich applications ranging from train floors, building envelopes, truck bodies, boat hulls to radomes. With PET Core, we offer a structural foam core combining high strength with low weight, excellent fatigue and durability, superior temperature stability and excellent compatibility with all common resins and manufacturing methods.
ArmaFORM® PET Foil are thin flexible PET sheets available in various thicknesses up to 6 mm, in densities from 70 to 300 kg/m³ and tailor-made formulations in terms of stiffness and fire resistance. Designed to provide a highly sustainable and improved alternative to cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) and polypropylene (XLPP) products in thermoforming applications, PET Foil in combination with glass-polypropylene fabrics / felts or natural skins, for example, is used in the automotive industry for door water shields and roof liners. With PET Foil, we offer a 100% recyclable and thermo-formable PET Foil product with an outstanding temperature window (service temperature up to +180°C).
ArmaFORM® PET MultiCore (MC): PET MC is the response to the market’s demand for multiple core designs, combining different densities in one foam core to improve impact and point load resistance and at the same time keeping the weight at its minimum. Armacell’s new product solution offers a unique combination of properties, including better strength-to-weight ratio, higher impact and point load resistance. The use of higher density layers allows for superior screw retention without additional reinforcement. Generally, the new PET MC grade is designed to replace traditional Plywood-XPS and other multi-ply panels used in a variety of applications such as load-bearing floor panels in lightweight trucks and trailers, side wall insulation panels in refrigerated trucks, in modular housing or accessible areas like scaffolding platforms, pedestrian bridges, stage panels and much more.
ArmaFORM® PET Beads are PET-based particle foams for the manufacturing of ready-to-use 3D shaped parts on an industrial scale. PET Beads combine the high mechanical properties of structural foam cores with the advantages of particle foams and allow us to offer lightweight and strong three-dimensional foam parts which are producible in any shape. Our new innovative fusion technology of loose PET beads does not require further production steps like milling and avoids any scrap. It is virtually a waste-free production.
As a technology leader, Armacell is the only manufacturer worldwide making PET foams from 100% recycled PET materials, more precisely from recycled beverage bottles. In addition to its sustainable raw material base, ArmaFORM® PET is manufactured according to an energy and resource-optimized production process: no use of ozone-depleting HFC / CFC blowing agents, grades with fire retardancy use halogen-free flame retardants only, and any material loss during production is re-used. Made from 100% recycled PET and once again 100% recyclable after the use phase, ArmaFORM® PET represents a highly sustainable alternative to comparable materials in the market.
