PET EngineersLightweight Structural Foam Core for Wind Turbines

When a manufacturing company wants to keep up with the global competition in the medium and long term, it has to be open to new market opportunities and to new materials. PET foam for composite applications will certainly meet expectations in this respect. Our rigid, engineered ArmaForm® structural foam is a lightweight core that is ideal for the blades of wind turbines.

PET (Polyethylene-Terephthalate) is widely known and familiar to consumers in the form of PET bottles. Yet this is only one area of application for this lightweight, recyclable thermoplast.

Armacell PET composite foam cores for use in Wind Turbines

PET foam will open up a great number of possibilities as a core material. The well-known core materials in the industry are PVC, SAN and PMI foams, as well as balsa and honeycombs. The innovative PET foam board displays an interesting ratio of density to stability. This foam is lightweight, stable yet flexible, offers a great compressive strength and is temperature resistant.

Applications:

  • Wind Energy

  • Building & Construction

  • Transport

  • Marine

  • General Industry
