AIREX® T90 is a closed-cell, thermoplastic and recyclable, structural PET rigid foam with excellent fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) properties. It is suitable for lamination with all types of resins and processes. It is easy to thermoform and process mechanically. It also offers great chemical resistance, is resistant against UV rays and does not absorb water. Curing and post curing at increased temperatures are unproblematic as it is highly heat-resistant without showing post-expansion and outgassing.
