Foam core material for composites
CORECELL™ T-FOAM STRUCTURAL FOAM CORE
Suitable for all PVC core applications
Excellent mechanical properties
Outstanding chemical resistance
Ideal for resin infusion
LITE version coming soon
Corecell™ T-Foam has been developed as a technological step-change from traditional PVC and Balsa structural core. Corecell™ T-Foam is an outstanding core material in every application where balsa or X-PVC is commonly used. High mechanical toughness and thermal stability give Corecell™ T-Foam excellent fatigue characteristics. This reliability makes Corecell™ T-Foam a natural replacement for cross-linked PVC or balsa in applications where a significant service life is required.
The high temperature stability of Corecell™ T-Foam also means that it can be used in manufacturing processes to at least 120°C with short durations during a cure cycle to over 150°C / 300°F. This makes it ideal for use with conventional prepregs and in some liquid infusion processes where high resin exotherms can often be seen. Corecell™ T-Foam is available in every resin infusion format and is compatible with polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin systems. Low resin absorption characteristics of Corecell™ and unique knife cut formats allow for higher performing infusions, lower resin cost & lower weight than any other structural core.
Ideal for applications where loads are less dynamic in nature, such as above the waterline on yachts, on wind turbines and in mass transport
