The BWF Profiles and BWF Thermoforms Material Compendium

Whether light-directing, light-diffusing, light-conducting or light-reflecting – even in combination with special fire protection requirements – we are your partner in the selection and processing of the suitable material!

For more than half a century, BWF Profiles and BWF Thermoforms have been producing plastic profiles, tubes, sheets, thermoformed parts and injection moulded parts from thermoplastics. In addition to our stock and standard range, we also manufacture customised products from a wide variety of raw materials on a large scale.

BWF Profiles and BWF Thermoforms exclusively use high-quality granulates and sheet material from the world’s leading premium manufacturers. This guarantees consistency in material properties and the highest quality.

Fire protection materials
by BWF Profiles

BWF Profiles uses numerous proprietary material compounds for applications with very strict fire protection requirements (e.g. for rail vehicles). We have already achieved unique successes in the development of these fire protection materials: For almost every common European and international standard, we have a suitable material that has been tested and certified in cooperation with accredited fire protection institutes.

BWF ecoRAIL®, a polycarbonate model that meets all well-known European fire protection standards and exhibits significantly better long-term stability than all standard flame-protection models, deserves special mention.
