Frankfurt, Germany, 2016/03/17 - Pflüger TOB GmbH, which is based in Obersteinach, Germany, offers a new generation of windowsill connection profiles, substructure insulation profiles and frame extensions, made with BASF’s structural foam Kerdyn® Green FST. DE000BASF111
• Material properties meet requirements for passive house construction;
• Pflüger TOB GmbH presents products at trade fair “Fensterbau Frontale”.
The company Pflüger TOB GmbH, which is based in Obersteinach, Germany, offers a new generation of windowsill connection profiles, substructure insulation profiles and frame extensions, made with BASF’s structural foam Kerdyn® Green FST. The company currently presents their innovations at the trade fair “Fensterbau Frontale”, which runs from March 16-19, 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany.
Kerdyn® Green FST conforms to construction material class B2 and is noted for its high compressive strength, good screw extraction values, as well as high temperature and chemical resistance. Kerdyn® Green FST is therefore also compatible with a large number of adhesive and sealing systems.
Thanks to its very low thermal conductivity, Kerdyn® Green FST is suitable for the use in a window or door profile in passive houses. Moreover, the water absorption of the material of less than 2% is extremely low.
Next to the material’s outstanding mechanical properties, Kerdyn® Green FST also makes a contribution to sustainability. At the end of its life cycle, the high-performance material on the basis of PET can be easily recycled.
The structural foam can be processed in two different densities (115 kg/m3 and 180 kg/m3) and can be supplied in thicknesses of 5-120 mm. The maximum panel size is 1005x2440 mm.
High-quality structural foams on the basis of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) offer extraordinarily good mechanical properties and are suitable for many different processing operations. PET foams have a high temperature resistance and very good chemical resistance. They are therefore extremely suitable for use as a composite material.
