Armacell (Thimister-Clermont, Belgium) is set to present its polyethylene terephthalate (PET)-based foam solutions and a technical presentation at CAMX 2019. The company will be in booth Y79 showcasing the following products:  

  • ArmaForm Core: Structural foam cores that combine various materials and processing properties, such as high strength-to-weight ratio, durability and temperature stability.
  • ArmaForm Foil: A fully recyclable and thermoformable thermoplastic foil product designed to provide an alternative to cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) and cross-linked polypropylene (XLPP) products in mainly thermoforming applications. 
  • ArmaShape: Loose PET-based beads for manufacturing lightweight 3D-shaped foam cores for composite sandwich structures. Used as a loose filler grade, Armacell says ArmaShape is an alternative to conventional material with improved compression strength and temperature resistance.
