High-insulating PVC-based façade elements in one step

Streamlining the manufacturing process, SKZ has developed a single-step way to make PVC-based façades with polystyrene-filled thermal insulation. It involved developing the right foam formulation, a suitable machine concept, the appropriate extrusion die, as well as a controlling process to monitor the system. The new process saves energy and CO2 emissions.
