A PET-based structural core material for high volume sandwich applications

News International-French

10 Feb 2015

3A Composites introduces AIREXT10, a product derivative based on technology AIREX GEN2, a highly industrialized production process presented last year.

AIREX T10 features a homogenous cell structure and enhanced mechanical characteristics when compared to AIREX T92. The new direct extrusion process allows for consistent material properties and quality control.

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

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.

The introduction of this novel PET foam product proves 3A Composites’ strong focus on innovation and customer value. AIREX T10 and more innovations will be key topics at 3AC’s booth no. 32 in hall 7.3 at the JEC from March 10-12, 2015, in Paris, France.
