Impact resistant foam core material for composites
Extremely resistant to impact, slamming and fatigue
Suitable for dynamically-loaded structures
Superior styrene and heat resistance to linear PVC foam
Ideal for resin infusion
THE ORIGINAL CORECELL™
Corecell™ A-Foam is the original Corecell™ material, developed because of frustrations with inadequate PVC core technology in marine sandwich structures. Corecell™ A-Foam is well known for its incredible toughness and resistance to cracking, which comes from its high ductility. Corecell™ A-Foam can elongate up to 65% in shear before failure, making core shear failure in a laminate almost impossible. Tests and experience show that Corecell™ A-Foam is the most reliable core material for dynamic loading situations where PVC and balsa may fail due to poor shear elongation properties. This reliability has made Corecell™ A-Foam the preferred choice amongst offshore yachtsmen for twenty years.
Corecell™ A-Foam is available in every resin infusion format and is compatible with polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin systems. The low resin absorption characteristics of Corecell™ and its unique knife-cut formats deliver higher performing infusions, low resin cost and low weight. Gurit’s global technical team have ten years experience in resin infusion and offer on-site support for Corecell™ customers. This combination makes Corecell™ the most reliable resin infusion package available.
