CoreLite PET

Next-Generation PET Foam Core

CoreLite PET is a cost-effective, closed-cell PET foam specially formulated to provide high mechanical properties.

Main advantages of CoreLite PET are:

  • High mechanical properties
  • Homogenous cell structure.
  • 100% recyclable material and made from recycled plastic bottles.
  • High temperature resistance and thermoformability.

Engineered to meet the physical demands needed in high performance applications, including carrying static and dynamic loads. Resistance to fatigue is superior, as well as its chemically stability and UV resistance. Water absorption is minimal.
CoreLite PET can handle processing temperatures up to 150 °C (302 °F).

During high temperature processing it is thermally stable and no outgassing or expansion occurs. In the event of fire, no toxic gases are generated.

For the most rigorous fire safety demands, CoreLite PET FR has outstanding fire-retardant and self-extinguishing properties. It can achieve HL3 certification when combined with phenolic or aluminum skins. This foam core is halogen-free.
