Description

Core Material - 1mm

Core Material 1mm Graphic

Core Material - 1mm normally used for rigidity and thickness with a resin consumption of about 600 grams per square meter per mm thickness. eg: Core Material - 1mm need 600 grams of resin per square meter. Core Material - 1mm is extremely soft and pliable when wet and therefore well suited for complex shapes.

Core Material - 2mm

Core Material - 3mm is used for weight critical applications. The Core Material - 3mm has a low resin take up of about 600 gram of resin per square meter per mm thickness. eg: Core Material - 3mm need 1800 grams of resin per square meter. Core Material - 3mm is often used for quick bulking (thickness).

Core Material - 4mm

Core Material 4mm Graphic

Core Material - 4mm maximizes weight reduction in structural core applications. Core Material 4mm is more suitable for thicker laminates due to low resin take up. Uses: Ratio of 600 gram per square meter of resin per mm thickness. eg: Core Material - 4mm need 2400 grams of resin per square meter.

Core Material - 5mm

Core Material 5mm Graphic

Core Material 5mm is the general purpose grade core material. The Core Material - 5mm has a take up of about 600 gram of resin per square meter per mm thickness. eg: Core Material - 5mm need 3000 grams of resin per square meter.
