Air Duct

Air Duct

The production of air duct in a twinsheet thermoforming process. And it using cross-linked PE foam which is alternative to the traditional air ducts made by extrusion blow-molding of polypropylene.

With advanced technology and experience for  producing chemically cross-linked PE foams have made Newcean as partner for manufacturers of twin sheet air ducts as well as car manufacturers.

Products Advantages

Due to the properties of the closed-cell PE foam the air ducts show excellent advantages:

  • Light weight
  • High temperature resistant
  • Thermal insulation improvement
  • Acoustic absorption
  • Sealing function
  • No condensation, no bacteria
  • Odorless material, no smell, no fogging
  • Easy production process, thermoforming and cutting
  • Assembly easy, high flexibility, good restoring behavior
  • Easy prototyping, cost-efficient prototype tools and fast prototype production
