3A Composites Develop New AIREX PET Technology

3A Composites says it has developed a completely new technology platform for PET foam core materials, AIREX GEN2.

According to 3A Composites, its GEN2 PET foam features a very homogenous cell structure and yet further enhanced mechanical properties compared to today’s successful AIREX T92. The company explains that whilst it remains a recycled and recyclable material, its formability and processing have also been improved.  It states that because of a lean and highly automated production process, GEN2 will offer a considerable total cost saving in the end application.

Philipp Angst, Director of Product Management, says: “GEN2 marks an important milestone in the further industrialization of structural foam core materials and will leverage the use of PET foam cores in yet more applications.”

3A Composites will be exhibiting at JEC Europe at Stand M32, Hall 7.3.
