Nexam Chemical and DIAB, in December 2015, signed a cooperation agreement with the aim of developing a unique high-performance foam containing NEXAMITE®-technology. The mutual ambition for the collaboration is to sign a long-term supply agreement. Nexam Chemical has now received its first order for industrial production of PET-foam.

Even if the order value is small, it once again shows that our NEXAMITE®-technology provides major enhancements in PET-foam. This will allow for a whole new generation of PET-foam on the market. The market for PET-foams experiences strong growth since more products in new application areas are manufactured in composites instead of metal. Products with PET-foam has in many applications strong competitive advantages, not at least on the basis of weight and performance. We are now intensifying our close cooperation with DIAB”, says Nexam Chemicals CEO Anders Spetz.
