Additional strength and stiffness of composite parts that is often demanded in application areas such as marine or building and construction can be achieved by adding a core material between two reinforcement layers. The greater the distance achieved by the core materials, the better the stiffness of the finished part. Euroresins offers a complete range of core materials for thin laminates which need to be impregnated with resins, as well as a range of core material foams for bigger laminates to suit individual customer requirements, such as flame, smoke and temperature requirements, impact resistance, chemical resistance and non-woven.
