Modern insulation is a key to effective climate protection, and this also applies to window profiles in new and renovated buildings. BASF has developed an Ultradur® (Ultradur® B4040 G11 HMG HP green 75074) that can be used for co-extrusion with PVC and is now available with a significantly improved property profile. With this new Ultradur® grade, PVC window profiles can be mechanically stiffened in the co-extrusion process. Compared with steel stiffening, the profile is lighter and can be produced at lower cost without compromising on stability and with improved insulation. Slimmer geometries are also potentially possible.
BASF is now offering its graphitic expandable polystyrene (EPS) granulate Neopor® in a biomass-balance version, Neopor® BMB. In accordance with the balancing method certified by REDcert, 100 percent of fossil raw materials are replaced by renewable raw materials - bio naphtha or biogas. Thus, the carbon footprint of Neopor® BMB improves by 90 percent compared to conventionally produced Neopor®. Detailed information on the environmental impacts of an insulation board made of Neopor® BMB can be found in an environmental product declaration (EPD) drawn up by the German association of building product manufacturers, Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU), specifically for insulation materials made of Neopor® BMB.
