At BAU 2019 we will demonstrate the latest developments in the field of foaming tech-nologies and their application in the construction industry. This includes:
• Advanced insulation materials with improved insulation properties that enable more efficient thermal insulation of buildings with lower material use
• Foams with environmentally friendly halogen-free flame retardants
• Biofoams based on renewable and/or biodegradable raw materials, which can be produced as particle and extrusion foams, avoiding the use of fossil raw materials.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the leading organization for applied research in Europe. It is made up of 72 institutes and research units located throughout Germany.
