Core materials for sandwich processings aquire an ever greater importance in the composite materials’ industry; Mates has always provided a full range of cores having different technical characteristics (fire, temperature, impact and pressure resistence) in such a way as to be able to fully achieve its reference target’s needs. Thanks to this type of product it is possible to realize high-performance manufactured goods, having a higher thickness (and therefore a higher resistance to bending) without compromising laminates’ final weight.
Core materials can be mainly divided into four main categories: foams, honeycombs, natural and needled. Depending on the exigences and type of lamination (vacuum, hand lay-up, infusion, etc.), we recommend different products, whose method of use are fully explained in the descriptions of specific categories and in those of each product.
