Foamlite® – Lightweight plastic sheets for greater benefits
We have developed the closed-pore foamed material Foamlite® 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® G is a PE-HD-based lightweight plastic 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.
