thermoformable flexible sheets

ArmaPET® Curve is designed for recyclable thermoformable micro sandwich solutions produced in continuous manufacturing processes.

// 100% recycled material supports industry environmental and sustainability directives

// Available in large rolls and sheets

// Micro sandwich solution optimises strength-to-weight ratio

// Excellent three-dimensional thermoformability

// Superior temperature resistant solution for automotive interiors

 

ArmaPET Curve is the first 100% recyclable and thermoplastic foil product based on 100% recycled plastics. Superior stiffness and compression combined with chemical and temperature stability characterise our innovative technical solution for thermoforming applications. The process versatility of ArmaPET Curve allows it to be used in a wide range of applications:

 

MICRO SANDWICH

ArmaPET Curve is used as a lightweight thin core in a micro sandwich set-up with fibre-reinforced laminates for applications in building and construction (e.g. cladding panels and shelters) and in the transport market (e.g. HVAC ducts and automotive interiors).

THERMOFORMED PARTS

Its thermoformability allows the creation of various shapes, whether as a part of a micro sandwich or on its own. ArmaPET Curve is used as a lightweight solution in various markets, such as the automotive sector (e.g. for door water shields and roof liners) and the packaging industry (for packaging protection).

PROCESS VERSATILITY

The process versatility of ArmaPET Curve allows it to be processed in multiple ways: 

Thermoforming allows for shaping without cutting the foam, thus eliminating core stress concentration and increased resin consumption.

Surface sanding increases the surface roughness to improve adhesion.

Perforation improves adhesion or allows for fibrous felts to stick without applying adhesives.

Die cutting a hexagonal pattern helps the resin to flow smoothly and increases peel strength.

 

 

CONTRIBUTING TO A CLEANER TOMORROW
