AIREX® T90 is a closed-cell, thermoplastic and recyclable polymer foam with excellent fire, smoke & toxicity (FST) properties.

It has very good mechanical properties and an extraordi-nary resistance to fatigue, is chemically stable, UV-resistant and has negligible water absorption.

It is thermally stable during high temperature processing and post curing. T90 is designed for easy use with all resin systems and processing technologies.

AIREX® T90 is the ideal core material for structural sand-wich applications requiring high fire resistance.
