Armacell says that it has started production of its polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foam at a facility close to Shanghai, China. According to the company, this is its first extrusion line in China and the fourth industrial scale PET foaming line globally.

‘The proximity to our major customers from the wind industry and excellent logistic conditions drove the decision to set up the new production line in Suzhou,’ said Thomas Kessel, Armacell MD. ‘Over the past years, China has become one of the most important markets for our high-performance, cost-effective and sustainable PET-based core materials. This move was an important step in our supply chain optimisation process to cope with the ongoing demand for lightweight PET-based composite solutions.’
