Our Rhinophen product is under development.
In applications which require load bearing capacity, compressive strength of the insulation material is vital. Due to the fine cell structure we offer the high compressive strengths which further increase with the density. Rhinophen in high density is commonly used for pipe support and structural sandwich panels.
Phenolic foam is known to be more fragile than other types of high performance insulation foam. This is due to a lower reversible flexibility (E-modulus) of the foam structure which is related to the nature of Bakelite. Simplified; Under stress the cell structure will have less ability to bend, extent or contract leading to collapse of the individual cell wall.
