Other core materials

Apart from PVC foam core there are some other core materials of different quality suitable for various applications. For example:

  • Wood – plywood
  • Balsa wood
  • Honeycomb made of aramid/nomex paper, fiberglass, carbon, plastic or aluminum
  • PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) foam
  • Polyurethane foam
  • Pseudo cores, nonwovens such as Coremat, Spheretex
  • Polystyrene

Comparing to wood based core materials (e.g balsa wood) PVC foam is relatively lighter but more expensive.

All different core materials will allow optimizing your product. Whether you need high strength at low densities, good fatigue resistance, good fire, smoke and toxicity properties, high impact resistance, excellent dielectric properties, recyclability or an eco-friendly material you will find the right material among the available offered.
