Your high-performing and lightweight solution 

Why engineered foams matter

Engineered foam is a versatile material that is widely used across industries because of its lightweight and robust properties. In the transportation industry, engineered foam provides effective thermal and acoustic insulation in composite panels used in trains, trucks, and trailers, ensuring passenger comfort and noise reduction. In the energy sector, recycled PET foam plays an essential role in wind turbines, contributing to the overall efficiency of energy production and transformation applications. Additionally, component foams made of elastomeric and polyolefin materials, hold important functions in the technical market, providing high-performance solutions for sound attenuation in OEM equipment and waterproof sealing in building construction and infrastructure projects. Our comprehensive offering of innovative foam product solutions is designed to meet all these needs, including structural and insulating foam cores, thin, flexible sheets for thermoformable micro sandwich solutions and particle foams to produce 3D foam parts.

Insulation is essential to the operational reliability of mechanical equipment. To avoid high maintenance, repair, and consequential costs, the technical performance and reliability of the installation must always be the deciding factor when selecting equipment insulation. Our comprehensive range of high-performing system solutions and products ensures long-term reliable results. Armacell materials allow for spot repairs, ensuring that if properly installed sections are damaged, they can be restored to their original efficiency. This extends the life of the insulation and reduces the need for costly full-scale replacements, significantly lowering maintenance and repair expenses over the lifetime of the insulation.
