Elastopor®: Intelligent sandwich technology for efficient insulation, cooling, storage and transportion

Versatile and with low thermal conductivity, Elastopor® is a closed-cell polyurethane rigid foam that makes energy-efficient construction possible.

The use of sandwich panels and insulation boards made of Elastopor® and Elastopir® in sandwich technology means an optimum combination of excellent mechanical and physical properties and thermal insulation.  Elastopor® is used as the core material of multi-layer construction elements with a diffusion-tight metal cover layer and is used for wall, floor and roof elements in industrial hall, refrigeration and warehouse construction. The metal composite elements are manufactured in continuous (double belt) and discontinuous (press) production. In residential construction, insulating elements with flexible cover layers such as aluminium or paper and a core of Elastopor are also used. The main areas of application here are steep and flat insulation and floor insulation. Elastopor® rigid foam systems are easy to process and guarantee high product quality. The polyurethane insulation products with different laminations and functional layers are an advantage for producers and consumers and an active contribution to climate protection


Key Properties of Elastopor®

  • Excellent mechanical properties

  • High insulation effect even with low material thicknesses
  • Very good bonding with different facings

  • Prefabricated panels with Elastopor® permit rapid and straightforward installation

  • Durable and low-emission

Better Technology – Better Foam

Many components are crucial for superlative quality in the production of polyurethane sandwich elements. Along with our precision-tuned polyurethane systems BASF also offers solutions in state-of-the art process technologies. The patented rake technology of BASF makes the production of high-grade PU and PIR sandwich panels more stable and more cost-effective. With its modular design, the patented rake replaces conventional laydown devices and can be adapted precisely to the construction panel being produced.
With the rotating disc, another patented technology of BASF, the foam can be applied more evenly on the surface material, thus ensuring a better quality of the final element. The rotating disc can be used for continuously produced sandwich panels and for honeycomb or lightweight sandwich panels.

Elastopor® is able to flow through and adhere to complex shapes and surfaces which provides a freedom of design as well as complete insulation, even in unconventional designs.
