Typical features of the final product:
- Variable density between 18 and 100 kg/m³
- Properties change according to the density
- Functional properties over a wide temperature range, from -40 to +75 °C
- Good thermal insulation
- Excellent shock absorption
- Low water absorption
- Reusable material
A typical moulding material is aluminium.
