3A Composites has announced a new innovation in PET foam products.
In November 2010, the new fire resistant AIREX T90.210 was introduced featuring increased mechanical properties compared to its predecessor. In January 2011 T92.200 was introduced as a cost-effective core material for all kinds of highly loaded sandwich applications. Now 3A COMPOSITES introduces another renewed density of it’s AIREX T90 family – the economical structural core material for applications with high flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) requirements.
The AIREX® T90.150 exhibits improved mechanical properties: damage tolerance has been raised from 2.5% to 8%; shear strength, another important design property, has been increased by over 20% all while the product’s density could be reduced by 3%. Other key features of AIREX T90 include the excellent fire resistance, high temperature performance, fatigue resistance and its recyclability.
The product has also been certified according to the relevant FST standards like NF, DIN, FAR and tests have shown that the new material can also comply with CEN TS 45’545 given the appropriate sandwich design.
