FOAM

FOAM_RALPH-ZÄHRINGER_5

Ceramic Foam is a fascinating material characterized by its airiness, its open porous surface and cellular structure. By foaming the volume of the original ceramic material increases, generating structures that are lightweight as well as resilient. Foam structures can also be found in nature, like for instance in cell formation or human bone structure. Common processes to produce ceramic foams in the ceramics industry are energy-intensive and problematic in terms of emissions.

FOAM is a process that does without chemical additives and enables the production of ceramic foams without industrial-technical effort. The FOAM process was further developed into the material product FOAM. In the sense of a sample catalogue technical interfaces, further processing as well as different design and surface qualities were designed on the basis of exemplary applications.
