FOAM TYPES

We offer you a selected product range of structure-reinforcing 3D|CORE™ foam cores to produce sandwich composites. These can be formed in 3D and guarantee an optimal resin flow. 3D|CORE™ is the first choice for designers and engineers to increase the rigidity in a sandwich construction and to reduce the weight.


3D|CORE™ PET

The 3D|CORE™ PET is a closed-cell, thermoplastic and recyclable high-performance rigid foam with excellent technical properties. This core is an all-rounder and is particularly suitable for the construction of high-strength, lightweight components with high permanent loads.
