Wood foam

Wood-based material

Fraunhofer-Institut für Holzforschung WKI, Braunschweig, Germany

In-house design

This wood foam combines the material properties of oil-based hard foams with high environmental compatibility. The foam material is based on pure wood and does not require raw petrochemical additives, since the wood itself provides the structural component (Cellulose) as well as the setting property. The wood foam can be used as base for light building materials and later be recycled without problem.
