AIREX Product Characteristics

Industrial foam

AIREX industrial foam

The product name AIREX is comprised of AIR as well as EX for expansion. Air bubbles that are characteristic for the product develop in the material during the manufacturing process, increasing the volume multiple times – without changing the weight. 

In concrete terms, our AIREX foam products are made of 50 to 96 % air. This not only minimizes the consumption of raw materials, but also the weight and costs.

AIREX® soft foams feature very good mechanical properties with minimal weight. 


AIREX® soft foams have the following characteristics:

·         Extremely low specific weight

·         Low raw material consumption
