Armacell (Thimister-Clermont, Belgium) will showcase its two product lines, ArmaFORM PET Core and PET Foil. ArmaFORM PET Core are polyethylene therephthalate-based structural foam cores used in sandwich constructions for the building and construction, rail and road transportation, marine and wind turbine markets. ArmaFORM PET foam cores offer excellent fatigue properties (threshold >60%), high mechanical strength, very good temperature stability (with curing temperature up to 180°C), as well as good process compatibility with all resins and manufacturing methods. In addition, it is thermoformable (3D shape) without property degradation in case of grid scoring and adding weight and costs because of corresponding resin intake.

New to the ArmaFORM PET range are thin PET sheets made from 100% recycled PET material, called ArmaFORM PET Foil. Available in thicknesses starting at 1 mm and different densities from 70-300 kg/m³ and customized formulations, ArmaFORM PET Foil is designed to provide a sustainable and improved alternative to cross-linked extruded polyethylene and extruded polypropylene products. Particularly, its improved stiffness and compression properties in combination with thermal and chemical stability reportedly differentiate ArmaFORM PET Foil from other thermoplastic foil products. The closed and fine cells provide a smooth surface structure for better processing in terms of lamination, die cutting, forming and more. It is resistant to cold from -40°C to heat up to 180°C. The heat resistance is said to provide a significantly broader thermoforming window than comparable XPE and XPP products, and simplifies processing and shaping.


  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive.
