Core materials play an important role in the composite industry. They are intricate structures that are bonded to two thin, stiff sheets on either side, forming what is known as a “sandwich structure”. Sandwich structures are used in a multitude of contexts, such as in building construction, aircraft and vehicular construction, as well as refrigeration engineering.
Our core materials support high-quality sandwich structures, as they are composed of non-woven components that boast remarkable workability as well as being cost and weight-efficient. Laminates that utilize our core materials carry the advantage of being light-weight and able to withstand high impact and fatigue.
