Bayer MaterialScience rigid foams – efficient energy management
The Bayer MaterialScience rigid foams Baymer®/Bayseal™ and Baytherm® are highly effective in preventing energy loss and thus also in minimizing CO2 emissions.
Bayer MaterialScience rigid foam is a highly cross-linked, closed cell, thermoset plastic with a low density. Its low thermal conductivity contributes to the material’s outstanding insulation properties. During the foam production process, the reaction system bonds permanently to the surface facings before it cures. Bayer MaterialScience rigid foams are high-performance materials for both insulation and construction.
Automotive headliners made from Baynat® rigid foam are combined with a fiber outer layer and decorative materials to form a lightweight, self-supporting unit that can be mounted in the car quickly and with absolute precision. The headliner looks stylish, cuts noise levels inside the vehicle and can also accommodate components such as multimedia devices, thanks to its high strength.
Last but not least, many national regulations require the automotive industry to incorporate specific safety features designed to reduce the risk of injury to pedestrians in the event of an accident. The lightweight energy-absorbing foam Baysafe® doesn’t just meet these requirements – when integrated into the component production process, it also ensures maximum efficiency in terms of both time and costs.
