Everyone Wants ROHACELL®

Lightweight construction is in great demand for a broad range of applications. It therefore comes as no surprise that the PMI-based structural foam ROHACELL® is used in countless areas. However, low weight is just one of many advantages the material has to offer.

The aerospace industry has long made use of ROHACELL® as a lightweight, structural core material that reduces the cost of sandwich materials because of its process reliability..

Lightweight construction in cars and trucks extends the range, allows for easier handling, and reduces fuel consumption. The use of ROHACELL® can save up to 50% of weight in each component. 

Because the properties of ROHACELL® are very similar to air, the material is ideally suited for substrates or spacers in antennas. 

Since the dielectric properties of ROHACELL® are similar to air, the material is used as a spacer in antennas and radomes (radar covers) of all sizes and types. 

The use of sandwich composite technology in railcars offers a greater choice of design options, less acceleration energy, and more space for passengers.

The high-performance variants of ROHACELL® wring the last gram of weight out of ship masts and are part of composite bulkheads that can be set up right next to hot gas turbines. 

High-quality X-ray and CT patient beds made with ROHACELL® structural cores provide high-resolution X-ray images with minimal radiation exposure to patients.

Cross-country skis, racing bikes, hockey sticks or surfboards – sports fans prize lightweight equipment. Thanks to ROHACELL® structural foam, victory is guaranteed. 

Sandwich designs with ROHACELL® foam ensure that the rotor blades of wind power facilities, which keep getting larger, don’t get too heavy.
