METAPOR® Air Permeable Composites
The materials are air-permeable over the entire surface, because of its micro-porous structure. In contrast to sintered materials, the pores are not closed off after machining. The unique characteristics of the materials provide numerous advantages that are useful in the thermoforming industry as well as for vacuum clamping and air cushion devices.
