(formerly FoamPartner)

Rigid Foam Systems – construPUR®

construPUR combines all rigid foam & rigid integral foam systems – insulation, shock absorption, and cladding

Our PUR rigid foam systems offer simple fabrication in a variety of applications. They can be processed using high pressure and low pressure technology, as well as manually. Our product range also includes highly durable, long-lasting rigid integral foam system options for select indoor and outdoor uses, as well as specialized automotive applications.

No matter whether you have specific mechanical requirements, an individual reaction profile, need material with outstanding insulation capabilities or are looking for flame retardant system variations, our PU rigid foam systems offer the solution.

PUR Rigid Foam Systems – Solutions

Areas of application

Are you looking for the best material for hot or cold insulation? Whether for refrigerators, hot water tanks, sensitive automotive parts, in district heating systems or the catering sector – PUR rigid foam systems from FoamPartner stand out for their excellent insulating properties. These systems can be used to achieve optimal thermal conductivity values (k value, U value). Age- and heat-resistant designs with good media resistance are also an option. For insulating applications, we offer special PUR rigid foam systems with lower densities (30–100 kg/m³). We would be happy to advise you on the various possibilities and additional fields of application.

In the construction sector, public transportation systems, in the air industry or in the electrical and electronics sectors – compliance with certain flame retardant standards is mandatory in many industries today for safety reasons. With flame retardant construPUR rigid foam systems from FoamPartner, your compliance with the required standards in your field such as DIN 4102 B2 or FMVSS 302 is guaranteed. 

Safety comes first! EAH systems are used first and foremost in the automobile industry. By absorbing even stronger impacts, they can help prevent more serious damage in case of an accident, both when used in the interior (crash pads) and in the bodywork (bumpers) of the vehicle. EAH systems are used in the field of occupational safety (inserts for hard hats) as well as for recreational and sports applications. 
Our EAH foams are available in flexible and rigid variants. We customize the precise hardness, pressure and shock absorption capacity and density to match your individual requirements.

Robust construPUR rigid foam systems for construction and model making applications round out the portfolio.

Blocks and molded components made of these rigid foam systems stand out in particular for their simple post-processing capabilities, which are very similar to wood.

Our construPUR rigid integral foam systems are your first choice when you need high-quality and technically superior components with a high breaking elongation and resistance to impacts. They are used especially in automotive exteriors (e.g. fenders, spoilers, bumpers), in the furniture industry (e.g. inserts for seating furniture, shelving units) and the electrical industry (e.g. housings for outdoor power distributors). Based on the optimized flowability of these systems, we can also carry out very complex geometries with the appropriate mold designs.
