Innovative Applications

Composite profiles open new possibilities

With the sandwich construction method, the two materials are combined to form a composite material.

In our composite profiles, the insulating foam core made from recycled PET is wrapped with glass-fibre reinforced thermoplastic. The wrapping is done in a continuous manufacturing process and is therefore economically attractive.

Our composite profile opens new, uncharted perspectives. From our customers we are constantly discovering new possibilities for use and processing.

  • frame widening in window and door construction
  • weather-resistant substructures
  • profiles with groove and comb
  • etc.

The profiles are processed with standard wood, plastic, or metal construction tools.

Industry, electrical, construction, logistics and design

Several sectors benefit from the considerable variety of applications of our revolutionary solution. Our new, innovative material offers unique design freedom for complex geometries.

Our composite profiles offer a wide range of advantages over conventional materials:

  • high load-bearing capacity with lowest net weight
  • electrical and thermal insulation (up to 3x lower thermal conductivity values)
  • weatherproof
  • resistant to aggressive chemicals and corrosion
  • good price-performance ratio due to continuous manufacturing process
  • local raw material sourcing and short transport routes for a healthy environment
