profine launches “proEnergyTec”: prefoamed profiles for cost effective manufacture and energy efficiency

By launching recently its “proEnergyTec”, a technology for prefoaming profiles, the profine Group is setting new trends in cost effective manu-facture and the thermal insulation of the future.“The main advantage of this new technology is the considerable time savings for the manufacturer.

The customer receives a completely heat insulated profile that does not need any further insulating inserts. In addition, prefoaming exhibits better thermal insulation than manual in-serts,” explained Dr.-Ing. Michael Szerman, Head of profine Research & Development / Product Management.
Unveiled at fensterbau/frontale 2012, “proEnergyTec” is currently avail-able in selected 88 mm system profiles from the KBE, Kömmerling, and Trocal brands.
The profiles are trimmed, welded, and cleaned in the usual manner – a further advantage for cost effective manufacture.
In addition, “proEnergyTec” allows the window manufacturer to fulfil efficiently the passive house standard set out in the ift guideline WA 15/2 with 88 mm installation depths.
Dr. Szerman continued: “proEnergyTec is an ecological technology on all fronts. Foaming makes exclusive use of eco friendly agents, and the foam and PVC can be separated cleanly from each other for recycling purposes.”
“proEnergyTec” – This example on the Kömmerling 88plus system fulfils the passive house standard set out in the ift guideline WA 15/2.
