Core Materials

Core materials is a generic term that refers to materials used as inner or core layers in composite structures. These materials are often designed to provide rigidity and structural strength to composite structures without adding excessive weight.

Industrial Applications of Core Materials

Core Materials are commonly used in industries such as aerospace, shipbuilding, automotive and construction, where it is necessary to balance light weight with strength. They can be made of various materials, including plastic or metal honeycombs, structural foams, plywood, etc.

Structural foam for aerospace and automotive

  • 3D-Core™ structural foam, made from PET sheets, is ideal for aerospace, marine, automotive, and numerous other applications that require low weight.

Honeycomb and polypropylene materials for construction.

  • Nidaplast invented the polypropylene honeycomb 25 years ago, combining plastic and honeycomb structure for lightweight and strong materials. Their extrusion process makes this technology accessible to sectors such as the marine, construction and aviation industries.
