About this event

Innovative Recycled PET Particle Foam for Waste-Free 3D Moulding

Armacell’s innovative range of the world’s first particle foam based on 100% recycled PET offers solutions for waste-free moulding of complex 3D shapes.

ArmaPET Shape combines the outstanding mechanical properties of a structural foam core with the advantages of particle foam to create lightweight, strong, recyclable and highly temperature-stable parts of nearly any shape. The portfolio upgrade makes it possible to mould at lower temperatures and to include inserts and metal parts directly in the moulding phase.

The webinar will not only introduce the product, but also suggest potential applications, possible moulding processes, and after-use recycling of the moulded parts.
