3A Composites Introduces AIREX T10, a New PET-Based Structural Core Material for High Volume Sandwich Applications

10 February 2015

3A Composites introduces AIREX T10, the first product derivative based on the new technology AIREX GEN2, a highly industrialised production process presented last year.

 

AIREX T10 features a very homogenous cell structure and highly enhanced mechanical characteristics when compared to today’s successful AIREX T92. The new direct extrusion process allows for extremely consistent material properties and an unparalleled quality control.

 

Its formability and processing have also been improved, yet it remains a recycled and recyclable material.  According to 3A Composites, thanks to the very lean and highly automated production process, AIREX T10 will offer considerable total cost savings for the end application.

 

New AIREX T10 targets current volume applications such as marine and wind energy as well as nascent markets with large potential for sandwich technologies such as the automotive industry.

 

Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3AC Core Materials, says: “We are proud to once again lead the industry of high performing structural core materials with the introduction of AIREX T10. This is an important milestone in the further industrialisation of core materials. We are convinced that AIREX T10 will leverage the use of PET foam cores in even more applications.”
