What is Piocelan®
Thanks to new technology, the advantages of expandable polystyrene and polyolefin are combined into a unique, innovative material, Piocelan® foam. Piocelan®’s special structural characteristics guarantee that low density foams are possible. In addition, weight is reduced and low production costs conserve resources.
Properties of Piocelan®?
Piocelan® has a very good impact resistance and energy absorption combined with low weight. In addition, its compressive strength is about 20% higher than that of EPS. Piocelan® also has a very high dimensional stability, which allows more complex shapes and designs to be realised. This is particularly important for the automotive industry with its high manufacturing accuracy. Piocelan® also has improved chemical resistance compared to classic EPS.
For every customer requirement we manufacture individually suitable solutions. Our transport packaging and hot wire cuttings reliably protect your sensitive and high-quality goods. Our technical molded parts can be used to create a wide variety of geometries and applications. Would you like to use Piocelan® for your products? Talk to us!
Piocelan® is a versatile polystyrene foam. In a new, innovative process, conventional polystyrene and polyolefin are added, thus adding further properties. This combination allows Piocelan® to retain the characteristic advantages of polystyrene, such as high stiffness and low density, while improving shock absorption and flexibility. It also improves resistance to chemicals. Compared to EPS (expandable polystyrene), Piocelan® has significantly improved chemical resistance. Nowadays, Piocelan® is also processed into hard-wearing value-added packaging and robust molded parts. In addition to its improved chemical resistance, Piocelan® also stands out for its excellent mechanical properties and far surpasses materials such as EPS. The new material is ideally suited, for example, for the economical production of load carriers for electronics and precision components. The high flexibility of the material guarantees that we can realize almost any design according to customer requirements.
Due to its high energy absorption and impact resistance, Piocelan® is particularly suitable for applications where people or products need to be protected from damage. Accordingly, Piocelan® is also increasingly used in the automotive industry, but the innovative particle foam is also used in products such as bicycle helmets, where it provides reliable protection against impact damage.
