New welding technology for thick insulation boards

BASF has worked with a well-known machine manufacturer to develop a new technology for welding insulation boards. The contactless, thermal welding process makes it possible to combine a variety of insulation materials. For example, Styrodur®, the extruded rigid polystyrene foam from BASF, can be combined with polyurethane, the inorganic insulation materials, or the melamine resin foam Basotect® to form completely new insulation material solutions. The Styrodur portfolio also includes new, especially thick boards made using this process in the highly compression-proof varieties Styrodur 4000 CS and 5000 CS. The boards cover the thickness range from 60 mm to 240 mm with a consistently good insulation value (lambda: 0.035 W/(m·K)).
