The closed-pore foamed polypropylene type material especially for applications in which construction materials need to have a very low weight
and have a high level of mechanical stability
. This opens up a wide range of possibilities in lightweight design.
Foamlite® P lightweight boards are nearly 30 percent lighter than comparable compact sheets. Depending on the application, the lightweight plastic sheet saves on materials, conserves resources and is easy to handle.
- Low weight
- Long service life
- Superior surface quality
- High mechanical strength
- Good insulation properties
- Easy processing
Foamlite® is available in special product variants which not only offer you low weight but are also ideal for use in a wide variety of applications.
Foamlite® P is available in a slip-resistant design with the special „cubic grain“ surface structure. The three-dimensional, cube-shaped grain ensures a mechanical
frictional connection between floor and shoe.
Contact with food
Foamlite® P FG blue is a special material for the food industry. It meets the requirements of EU Regulation 10/2011 – Plastic materials and articles intended to
come into contact with food – as well as the requirements of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Its UV resistance makes Foamlite® P FG blue suitable for use
in industrial food areas with UV-based hygiene systems.
Protection against electrostatic risks
We have developed Foamlite® P AST especially for areas where there is a need for controlled conductance of electrostatic charge and low weight at the same time.
High voltage pulses can arise with uncontrolled electrostatic discharge and destroy sensitive equipment, components and workpieces. With Foamlite® P AST, these
components are protected by controlled conductance of the electrostatic charge.
Foamlite® G is a PE-HD-based lightweight sheet. With a density of 0.75 g/cm³, Foamlite® G has a weight advantage of more than 20 per cent compared with
compact polyethylene at 0.95 g/cm³. The material boasts a superior surface quality, is optionally available with a smooth or grained finish and is very easy to process.
At the same time, Foamlite® G can be welded with polyethylene (PE) very easily.
