Gurit® Corecell™ T has been developed as a technological step-change from traditional PVC and balsa structural core. Gurit® Corecell™ T is an outstanding core material in every application where balsa or X-PVC is commonly used. High mechanical toughness and thermal stability give Gurit® Corecell™ T excellent fatigue characteristics. This reliability makes Gurit® Corecell™ T a natural replacement for cross-linked PVC or balsa in applications where a significant service life is required.
The high temperature stability of Gurit® Corecell™ T 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. Gurit® Corecell™ T is available in every resin infusion format and is compatible with polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin systems. Low resin absorption characteristics of Gurit® Corecell™ and unique knife cut formats allow for higher performing infusions, lower resin cost & lower weight than any other structural core.
