Technical specifications & Properties
The economical construction of ALPET®
With the sandwich construction method, we process the insulating structural foam core based on PET and encase it in glass-fibre reinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic.
Empty spaces are replaced by a foam with microscopically small air chambers.
In a continuous manufacturing process, the sheathing, including dovetail connectors or grooves/flags are produced extremely economically around the foam core.

Effects in case of shear load
The following figures show the investigation of stresses in different ALPET® cross-sections. They are below the values specified in the standard. Figure 20 shows the occurring stress according to Mises under tension.

Thermal behaviour checked
The thermal effects were checked with the FEM programme. The occurring stresses are below the
permissible value, the requirement according to the standard is fulfilled by far.

Our insulation bar in comparison with conventional insulation bar and profile systems:
|ALPET®||Rw (C; C tr) = 46 (-2; -6) dB|
|Reference depth 80 mm||Rw (C; C tr) = 46 (-2; -6) dB (Noryl-Steg)|
|Reference depth 70 mm||Rw (C; C tr) = 47 (-2; -6) dB (Polyamid-Steg)|
