PVC foam as structural element replacing wood frames in caravan industry


For caravans, a newly developed foamed PVC compound replaces the lattice wooden strip inside the sandwich panel. Replacing the wooden strips with plastic slats seems an excellent solution for many camper builders, as the PVC resists water infiltration which can in the long run cause wood to rot. Fainplast teamed up with profiles producer Komplast to create the new product, which also offers better durability and excellent flame retardant qualities compared to wood.
