PET core for new conservatory panel
Sunday, 02 February 2014

AV Composites, based in Bouches du Rh?ne, France, has developed and patented a new aluminium composite panel for conservatory roofing that is 100% recycled and recyclable because its insulating foam core is made from recycled PET bottles.

The advantages of aluminium for the conservatory-roofing sector include the fact that its doesn?t rust, can be cut easily, is light, and has a life span 1,000 times longer than that of polycarbonate.
