New Product from BASF brings Packaging Production to High-Speed

The new Styropor® P 24 Speed lives up to its name: Due to a lowered pentane content (∼4.8 per cent), moulding cycle and conditioning times are shortened during the production process. Compared to conventional Styropor® P 26, the moulding cycle time of the Speed version can be reduced up to 50 per cent. Furthermore, the new Styropor® P24 Speed is equipped with the usual quality features and is therefore perfect for food packaging. Electronic parts can also be transported safely in thin-walled technical packaging, produced out of Styropor® P 24 Speed.

Best eco-efficiency

Neopor®’s exemplary eco-efficiency greatly improves the overall sustainability assessment of buildings. Compared with other insulation materials such as mineral wool, Neopor® offers the best eco-efficiency. The special properties of Neopor® make it possible to reduce insulation thicknesses and raw material consumption. As a result, the environment is protected while still achieving maximum insulation performance – at a comparatively low cost.
