3A Composites Core Materials launches the reformulated Airex T92

Extensive R&D research and testing have resulted in the Airex T92 reformulation. While Airex T92 is based on virgin PET, the reformulated T92 now contains post-consumer bottle PET, making the product even more sustainable.

Airex T92 is known for its product performance. Its specific mechanical properties besides its resin uptake both make T92 an attractive product from a performance and total cost point of view. The reformulated Airex T92 features unchanged, high properties, meets all performance requirements and excels with its resin uptake.

“We successfully achieved the product reformulation while confirming the outstanding material properties. Airex T92 is the first PET foam core based on recycled bottles, that achieves the high performance of its virgin version. We are happy to offer our customers this additional benefit of ‘most ecological core’ and extend further our impact towards a stronger, lighter, greener future”, said Eric Gauthier, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials.

A core material’s ecological footprint consists of three pillars: the core’s raw material, its specific density, and its resin uptake. The reformulated Airex T92 excels on all accounts and is, therefore, one of the most sustainable solutions for sandwich core materials.
