Armacell, a leader in flexible foam for the equipment insulation market and a provider of engineered foams, has announced that it is pursuing discussions with Metyx, a Turkey-based manufacturer of high-performance technical textiles like multi-axial reinforcements and carbon reinforcements, to jointly serve the Turkish composite manufacturing market.

The collaboration will provide the local production of Armacell’s PET-based foam products supply to Metyx’s core kitting operations and distribution. Armacell has a long expertise in developing and manufacturing innovative and environmentally friendly PET foam solutions, and Metyx is excelling in the production of high-performance technical fabric products, Armacell said in a media statement.

Armacell will install a new PET foam production line, the seventh of its kind, close to the Metyx kitting facility in the Manisa area, Western Turkey. Locally manufactured PET foams are made by Armacell’s patented rPET processing technology enabling high-performance, cost-effective and sustainable PET foam core materials based on 100 per cent recycled PET, according to Armacell.
