    Flexicel collaborates with the students from the University of the Balearic Islands during the exhibition ‘Science for everyone 2016’. Several demonstrations have been made showing the excellent properties of the aerogel blanket ‘Spaceloft’.

    Flexicel Portugal expands its facilities once again in 'Rua Pereiras de Marvilha', with the procurement of a new building of 750 m2 located in front of the existing. It will be designed to store raw materials and will allow us to incorporate new equipment to our production lines during the first half of 2016 . With this increase in floor space, the Portuguese plant of our Group will have more than 3,500 m2. They will guarantee the viability of the growth forecast for the coming years.

    Flexicel Portugal has been proposed to obtain ISO-TS 16949:2009 Certification during the Audit carried out on February 6th, 7th and 8th. According to the usual process, TÜV-Rheinland certifying entity, will issue the appropriate certificate in due course.

    The sound insulation of Portuguese Radio and Television studios is a fruit of cooperation between Flexicel Portugal & Viscoustic. The applied material is Basotect® UF, the most flexible BASF’s melamine resin foam. In addition to its soundproof qualities provides a high level of fire resistance  indispensable in places with a large quantity of electrical, electronic and lighting material, constant changes in technical installations and continuous staff rotation.

    The gas is normally transported from the storage sites to consumers through pipelines, but if the gas has to be stored and  transported over longer routes, it is often more economical and easier to liquefy the gas and transport it by ship, in steel tanks at the temperature of (- 162º C). Basotect® has been applied for the first time to insulate these recipients making use of its low-temperature stability and its flame retardant capacity.

    ACUSTIAIR A30 AIG 0/30 is classified as EUROCLASE 'Cs2d0' according to the regulation EN 13501-1:2007 for Construction Sector.

    On the other hand,  the range IMPACTO CEL and ACUSTIAIRhave passed the Glow Wire Test according to the UNE-EN 60695-2-11:2001 (for 550º C temperature) elaborated for electrical appliances and electronic components sector.

    One of the novelties at Construmat 2011 is the incorporation to the range of  the melamine resin foam Basotect® of a new grade offering improved ecological properties.The new grade is called Basotect G+. With its extremely low emissions it meets the current human ecology requirements of the Öko-Tex® Standard 100 in product class II for textiles with direct skin contact. The foam, which is used for sound absorption in buildings, is therefore classed as harmless to health in application and processing.

    In addition to the proven properties of Basotect G, the new material also has advantages for interior decorators and designers. The light reflectance value of the considerably lighter Basotect G+ is more than 30 percent higher than that of the light Gray Basotect G. This makes it easier for example to plan interior decoration and lighting because the foam hardly absorbs any light and reflects it very well.

    The acoustic fire retardant foam, PUR ETER E25 FR, thanks to the imagination and creativity of Santos Bregaña, designer from Estudio de Arquitectura y Diseño LAIAWEB, has been converted into rocks and breakwaters, recreating in this way the environment that surrounds the NI NEU Restaurant (Grupo IXO), situated in Kursaal in San Sebastian. Numerous foam cubes are hanging from ceiling obtaining an attractive design, warm and friendly room with acoustic comfort, free of reverberations. We invite you to visit this magic place through J. Luis López de Zubiría’s photographs, however there is nothing better than personal visit and opportunity of tasting the famous Basque gastronomy…

    GRUPO FLEXICEL has been designated by BASF as an authorized distributor of  BASOTECT® (Melamine Resin Foam) in Portugal. Basotect characteristic feature is its three-dimensional network structure consisting of slender and thus easily shaped webs.It is a low density material with high sound absorption capacity, good thermal insulation properties, flame resistant and constant physical properties over a wide temperature range.

    The last July we lauched a new high durability product: IMPACTO CEL® A30. Its main characteristics are: its acoustic insulation performance against impact noise which enables a sound absorption up to 21 dB in 10 mm and 28 db in 30 mm thickness. Besides, it is a low  compression creep and water and humidity tight material.

    Available in rolls for 10 and 20 mm thickness and in sheets for 30, 40, 50 mm thickness.

    Duct Insulation

    06-12-2005

    We have developed a perfect air conditioning duct insulation, mixing together different materials : POL NA 30 FR TC + D036 + AL12 GFS. Rubber based adhesive + aluminium with fiberglass mesh is applied over closed cell Polyethylene Foam. This excellent thermal insulation is classified as 'B s2 d0' according to European Fire Safety Standard EN 13501-1 and has sanitary permit for its resistance to microorganisms such as Legionella or Staphylococcus aureus.
