BASF's new welding technology for thick insulation boards
Styrodur welding - desirable properties of different building products can be combined

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE has worked with a well-known machine manufacturer to develop a new technology for welding insulation boards. The contactless, thermal welding process makes it possible to combine a variety of insulation materials.

For example, Styrodur, the extruded rigid polystyrene foam from BASF, can be combined with polyurethane, inorganic insulation materials, or the melamine resin foam Basotect to form completely new insulation material solutions. The Styrodur portfolio also includes new, especially thick boards made using this process in the highly compression-proof varieties Styrodur 4000 CS and 5000 CS. The boards cover the thickness range from 60 mm to 240 mm with a consistently good insulation value. 

Advantages for the construction industry
Architects, planners, and craftsmen benefit from the new possibilities: the traditional advantages of the Styrodur board, such as low water absorption and high compressive strength, can be combined with the desirable properties of other building products.

BASF has already patented a range of applications and product combinations. On this basis, the company is seeking to develop and advance new applications in building insulation together with interested partners.
