PBF TECHNOLOGY

HIGH-CLASS, AFFORADABLE LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION
For decades, particle foams - especially polypropylene and polystyrene - have proven their outstanding capabilities as light, insulating, and protective materials. However, we have rethought particle foams and the underlying process. With dynamic cavity heating, we have succeeded in creating backfoamed surfaces directly in the mold. This brings to life molded parts with high-class surfaces at economically attractive conditions.

This technique offers a wide variety of different applications. Precise and dynamic mold temperature control allows us to process additional thermoplastics as particle foams. We can even process thermoplastics made of PET, MPPE, or sea plastics. The ultra-low CO2 footprint of PS, for example, plus the option to use post-consumer material make this technology a future-proof solution with minimum CO2 emissions

HIGH-QUALITY COMPONENTS OF THE FUTURE

We backfoam premium Class A multilayer films made of PMMA and ABS or with an additional PC proportion for higher heat resistance. Make use of our many years of experience in developing and processing textiles for interior and exterior trim parts. Particle foams are perfectly suited to backfoam textiles without changing their material properties. What we get are components with an outstanding look and feel – unique in design and sustainability. This technique also allows manufacturers to create surface structures directly in the mold (In-Mold Graining) and to backfoam natural leather or wood veneers with particle foams.

BENEFITS OF PBF TECHNOLOGY


Using as little material as possible saves money and weight. If we succeed in creating all necessary component functions in one single process step, we get components that will occupy a definite place on the market. Installing such components into vehicles helps us save drive energy, not only theoretically but also daily. Weight reserves open the door to even more freedom of design.  If the components are recyclable or consist of post-consumer materials, we have made a good decision together.
