Worms, 05. February 2013 – Lightweight, resistant, easy to process, cost competitive and recyclable: It is not for nothing that RENOLIT GORCELL is being used in an increasing number of sectors, be it as interior trimming, wall cladding, furniture or flooring. The numerous positive characteristics of RENOLIT GORCELL have now been discovered by Material ConneXion Cologne. The Cologne-based material reference library has presented the composite from RENOLIT with the first “Material of the Month Award 2013”.
Karsten Bleymehl, Director Library & Materials Research at Material ConneXion Cologne, was impressed by RENOLIT GORCELL: “The novel technology enables the customer-specific, energy and resource-efficient manufacture of lightweight honeycomb cores and sheet stocks which can be fully recycled (mono-material). Subsequent thermoforming of the composite opens-up a multitude of new application opportunities”.
RENOLIT GORCELL is a combination of RENOLIT composites and an ultra-light honeycomb core. These honeycomb structures are very strong and also waterproof. Customers then use thermoforming processes to manufacture complex elements which are both lightweight and resistant. By combining it with non-wovens, anti-scratch films, various fibers or decorative RENOLIT films, RENOLIT GORCELL is highly versatile and offers completely new design opportunities for constructional elements. Furthermore, such components can be cost-effectively manufactured and later fully recycled.
Along with RENOLIT GORCELL, SILGLOW® from the Quarzwerke Group also received an award. This is a luminescent filler which, when added to plastics, causes them to day-glo and is thus particularly suited for use in road markings, road signs and warning signage. Material ConneXion extolled the high luminescent as well as the extreme mechanical and thermal stability of SILGLOW® .
With the “Material of the Month Award”, Material ConneXion Cologne distinguishes material and process innovations which have manufacturing potential as high-performance, resource-efficient and attractive products, packaging and architectures.
Material ConneXion has been consulting manufacturers from different sectors on material and product developments for over 14 years. Material ConneXion acts as an independent link between material manufacturers and material users. The company has established a comprehensive materials reference library which an impartial jury of specialists enlarges every month with new materials.
The RENOLIT Group is an international leader in the manufacture of high-quality plastic films and related products for technical applications. This independent family-owned business, which has been setting benchmarks for quality and innovation for over 65 years, now employs a workforce of approximately 4,500 employees at more than 30 production sites and sales entities.
