Thanks to their advanced mechanical properties and light weight, composite sandwich panels are of great importance in the aerospace, automotive, railway, mass transportation, marine, sports and leisure, logistics and construction industries. Kordsa’s composite sandwich panels are available in flat geometry, with dimensions up to 1.5 m x 3.0 m. Areal weights and dimensions of panels can be tailored according to customer needs, as can the core material and its thickness. Typical features of standard sandwich panel products are flame-retardancy with high flexural strength, stiffness, and a lightweight structure. Typical core materials and their attributes are:
- Aerospace or Commercial Grade Nomex® This material possesses high strength, high flameretardancy, excellent thermal insulation and dielectric properties, as well as high moisture resistance.
- Aluminum honeycomb has high strength and enables weight reduction.
- Foam cores are generally made from PVC and PU polymers. They are cost-effective, they can be used in lightweight structures and possess advanced mechanical properties.
- The industrial uses for composite sandwich panels include floors, doors, flat bulkhead, roofs, containers, shelters, crash absorbers, furniture, and facing panels for high-rise construction.
