AIREX®, BALTEK®, BANOVA® - Foam and balsa lightweight solutions for trucks, cars, recreational vehicles and buses

All road transport applications strive to reduce weight with consistent rigidity - our specialty. Weight reduction results in a significant reduction of fuel consumption as well as an increased weight capacity - both are driving factors for vehicle operating costs.

This is particularly important for future urban local traffic solutions or electric cars, where weight savings result in a significant reduction of energy, electricity consumption, and therefore also an increased range.

Sandwich constructions are the ideal material for the construction of road vehicles due to their minimal weight, excellent optical features, high corrosion resistance, and enormous rigidity. They also have excellent fire and insulating properties and their excellent formability can facilitate the work of the designer.

Our trendsetting technologies protect the environment, save resources, and reduce operating costs significantly. In this manner, our composites AIREX®, BALTEK®, and BANOVA® allow ecologically and economically optimized road transport solutions. Versatile materials for various areas of application:

  • Passenger cars
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Trucks
  • Buses
  • Special purpose vehicles
