Rohacell® - A New Dimension
of Weight Reduction
For years, lightweight design has been a must in the automotive industry, but new requirements have created an even greater focus on fibre-reinforced composites, especially in sports cars and electric vehicles (EV).
With the structural foam ROHACELL®, innovative solutions become lightweight realities, and manufacturing processes become more efficient.

Compared to monolithic composite structures, sandwich technology is an excellent way to reduce weight without sacrificing rigidity. Thanks to its outstanding mechanical properties and low density, ROHACELL® offers the most weight saving potential for all structural foams. With an entirely closed cell structure, ROHACELL® foam takes up zero resin. Only the cut cells at the surface will be filled. Thanks to the wide range of different ROHACELL® grades, customers can select the optimal cell size and reduce the resin content at the surface to a minimum. By avoiding unnecessary resin and layers, ROHACELL® reduces weight and cost. Improving your efficiency, preparation and long production cycles are key cost drivers of composite technology.

Using sandwich composites can offer many more options than steel. ROHACELL® compliments these options with its easy shaping. It can be shaped by common CNC-machines or thermoformed within minutes. In comparison to other foams, no special surface preparation is needed, and because of its high thermal and creep resistance, it can be cured quickly at elevated temperatures. No other core material offers such ease of processing required for autoclave, resin infusion, or press moulding.

Body panels or monocoques made with ROHACELL® not only offer a structural function, but with its thermal conductivity of approx. 0.03 W/mK-1, the foam is also an ideal and efficient vehicle insulator.
It does not contain heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, or hexavalent chromium, as specified in Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of September 18 2000. ROHACELL® is IMDS listed. It does not contain the flame retardants polybrominated biphenyls or polybrominated diphenyl ether.

ROHACELL® offers high, recurrent energy absorption that remains almost constant over a wide range of temperatures. This benefit, combined with its homogenous structure, makes it ideally suited for simulations that parallel practical evaluations very closely.

ROHACELL® is 'The Champion's Choice', why would you use anything else?!

Formula Student
The teams we have sponsored this year have been ordering in their allocation of free issue ROHACELL® to help them on their quest to build their design for this year's Formula Student competition. We have noticed more and more teams are becoming wise to the materials unbeaten properties and seem to be using more in their car designs than ever before.

Making students aware of engineering materials can help them develop their skills for when they set out to work after completing their degrees. They are the engineers of our future and if we can help them develop their knowledge we have done our bit! We encourage students to test different grades of ROHACELL® to help them show their findings for their projects. We also offer out our technical guides which we have now filled with more useful information that our customers have provided us with. Our guide is a bit more in depth than the average 'Material Properties' table!

It seems as though the Formula Student World is very similar to that of Formula One. Materials used are all very Top Secret in the hope that each team's design stays exclusive to help them towards winning the best results!

To all the teams who have had their full allocation of ROHACELL®, remember you now receive a 10% discount on any further ROHACELL® purchased! Don't forget to send in updates on how you are putting our ROHACELL® to use via email to Leah Sillis on info@emkayplastics.co.uk. And to those who haven't had their material... get your purchase orders in!
