Exhibitor: Armacell Benelux S.C.S.
From Bottle to Foam - 1,000,000,000 PET bottles used in production
Armacell is the pioneer in the field of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) technology and initiated the breakthrough of PET foams as a structural core material in the composite industry. In the early days, our PET foams were made from virgin PET. Over the past decade, our global research and development team developed a process technology enabling the production of PET foam products made entirely from recycled beverage bottles.
We convert single-use recycled PET bottles into long-lifetime, high-value foam core materials for composite sandwich structures utilised in up to 90-metre-long wind turbine blades, high-speed train body structures, surfboards, as well as on the 24-karat gilded roof of an orthodox cathedral.
Our unique PET foam products meet the stringent technical requirements of today‘s composite core materials and follow the circular economy guidelines to preserve our environment.
