AIREX® T90 - easy to process FST structural foam

AIREX® T90 is a closed-cell, thermoplastic and recyclable, structural PET rigid foam with excellent fire, smoke, and toxicity (FST) properties. It is suitable for lamination with all types of resins and processes; it is easy to thermoform and process mechanically. It also offers great chemical resistance, is resistant against UV rays, and does not absorb water. Curing and post curing at increased temperatures is unproblematic as it is very heat-resistant and does not post expand or outgas.

Applications
  • Ship and boat construction (deck, interior fittings, superstructures)
  • Rail and road vehicles (floor plates, side walls, interior fittings, roofs, motor cover)
  • Industrial components (covers, containers, x-ray tables, sports)
  • Architecture and construction (roofs, cover panels, domed roofs, portable structures)
