Abstract

This study has perfected new phenolic foams with improved properties and a continuous method for their manufacture. The most important results are: + obtaining low density foams of around 40 kg.m**-3, in the form of sheets 0,30 m wide by 3 m long + perfecting a manufacturing method using heating by dielectric loss. The main modification in the composition of the new composite material is the use of a new reinforcement (a layer of polyethyleneterephtalate, instead of glass fibre). The production process has permitted continuous blocks of foam to be produced, 30 cm wide and 3 cm thick, with a mass of 40 kg.m**-3. These materials show better resistance to fire and ageing at high temperature when compared with other materials of the same type currently available.
