Foamlite® P is a PP-C-based lightweight construction material. This material is now 30% lighter than comparable compact sheets. With a density of 0.65 g/cm³, Foamlite® P offers clear weight advantages over a sheet made of compact polypropylene at 0.915 g/cm³. The material also has an excellent combination of toughness, high rigidity, strength and chemical resistance. The surface is optionally available with a smooth finish or with a fine grain. Foamlite® P is especially useful for applications in which construction materials need to have a very low weight and have a high level of mechanical stability. This opens up a wide range of possibilities in lightweight design.
As an added benefit, since Foamlite® P is substantially lighter, this saves on materials, conserves resources and is easier to handle. This gives the user new possibilities in design and economic advantages.
Foamlite® P has an "integrated" hinge. It is sufficient to mill a simple 90-degree V-notch into it. The high bending fatigue strength of the material means that the hinge can be folded more than 40,000 times without breaking.
