Lightweight and rigid with excellent mechanical and structural properties, PVC core is extremely consistent in cross section and bonds well to resin and laminate constructions. Like balsa core, scored and cut PVC conforms to mold contours and is used across market and product segments including marine, wind energy,
This article will attempt to inform boat builders about the properties and correct manufacturing procedures involved in constructing foam core sandwich laminates. History. The first foam material specifically formulated for a marine environment was a poly vinyl chloride (PVC) and isocyanate blend (simply called PVC foam)
Piedmont Plastics stocks PVC foam sheet for marine applications, including Aqua-Plas I, Aqua-Plas III, Aqua-Plas IV, and Seaboard Endurabond.
Items 1 - 11 of 11 Sandwich core construction uses lightweight cores with flexural modulus and strength properties far greater than the materials used as skin laminates. Corecell A500 marine structural foam sheets from the boat building and repair experts since 1977. Grid scored Divinycell cross-linked PVC foam core.
After the war, PVC was not a popular choice of materials in the marine industry due to its density. In the 1970s, the need for a strong, moisture-resistant material led to plastic manufactures working with PVC to make it lighter. This led to the creation of PVC foamboard, by combining PVC with polyurea at the molecular level.
