Armacell’s market leadership in insulation materials and high-performance foams is a commitment to consistently deliver high quality across its products and solutions. Certified quality management systems are key in ensuring compliance with Armacell’s ultra-strict standards. A global quality conformity team oversees quality control and testing. Complementary state-of-the-art product testing centres are located at other Armacell facilities around the world. Customers expect the highest quality standards from the market leader, and Armacell engineers are dedicated to ensure their expectations are met.

30,000 tests in four categories are conducted annually at the main testing centre in Münster, Germany.

Armacell drives innovation strategically. Over the past three years, the company invested approximately €30 million into R & D to maintain the highest production standards and accelerate innovation. Some 100 researchers and technicians at Armacell facilities in Belgium, Canada, China, Germany and the USA are driving innovation in quality-oriented production, product performance, new materials and pioneering technologies. Innovations they develop – often in close collaboration with partnering universities – are subjected to the strictest quality tests prior to commercialisation.

Armacell works closely with universities and research institutes around the world. The company cooperates with the University of Sheffield, UK to develop new acoustic solutions and fundamental understanding of acoustic phenomena for various materials and systems.
