Nidaplast Develops Innovative New Applications for Lighter Materials

Nidaplast has developed new applications combining nidaplast8 honeycomb with heavy conventional materials such as marble, fibre-reinforced concrete and steel.

These structural sandwich panels are both cost effective and environmentally friendly. They are stiffer than conventional materials, offering new characteristics such as thermal and sound insulation properties together with greater impact and fatigue resistance without any additional material. Their lighter weight also makes them easy to transport and install.

While retaining the surface finish of conventional materials, the new sandwich panels require less material (a sandwich panel with a 7-mm-thick marble layer can replace a 20-mm-thick marble plate). In terms of manufacturing, processing and utilisation, these low-weight materials contribute to sustainable development through their positive energy balance.

Nidaplast will also announce its new strategy at the JEC Composites Show 2008. The company is re-structuring around its core activity (extruded polypropylene honeycomb) to create three market-oriented divisions: Nidaplast Composites, Nidaplast Waters and Nidaplast Ecogarden. “The growing success of polypropylene honeycomb has pushed us to create three divisions to support the continuous development of our customers’ new markets”, said Richard Filippi, Marketing and Development Manager at Nidaplast.
