ArmaPET Shape particle foam offers maximum design flexibility to produce lightweight rigid 3D foam parts using innovative fusion technology.
It combines the high mechanical properties of structural foam core with the advantages of particle foams to offer lightweight and strong three-dimensional foam parts which are producible in nearly any shape.
ArmaPET Shape is the first fully recyclable mouldable particle foam entirely made of recycled plastics. This is our solution for a cost-effective production of ready-to- use 3D shaped structural foam parts.
ArmaPET Shape targets large volume applications in many industries, where lightweight yet strong 3D plastic parts are prerequisites for a successful product design. One example is the automotive industry, where ArmaPET Shape can be used to replace aluminium sheets for bodies, chassis or engine hoods, as well as structural add-on parts such as spoilers.
ArmaPET Shape allows for a wide range of processing temperatures up +180°C / +356°F and is ideally suited for fast curing processes at elevated temperatures.
It is extremely tolerant to high-peak exothermic reactions and shows no degradation of material properties even in the case of hot spots.
ArmaPET Shape is made by Armacell’s unique and patented process technology, enabling the production of PET foam materials based on 100% recycled PET. Its positive eco-balance supports the industry’s requirement for the design of more sustainable product solutions.
- Based on 100% recycled plastics
- No use of ozone-depleting CFCs or HCFCs
- Fully recyclable after use
- We convert post-consumer PET bottles into long
- lifetime, high-value particle foams with lowest C02 emissions.
Microcellular Closed Cell Structure
Water or liquid ingress is prevented by the closed cell structure, which ensures that the excellent mechanical properties remain unchanged over time. In addition, ArmaPET Shape moulded foam parts exhibit excellent insulation properties.
The fine, smooth surface structure of ArmaPET Shape moulded foam parts provides an excellent bond to facing layers and limits resin uptake without additional treatment or the need for extra layers. It is compatible with any commercial resin system and thermoset material.
