our hdu marine-grade foam serves as core material for building transoms, hulls and bulkheads. it also provides an enduring, cost-effective choice for polyurethane boat interiors. boat builders rely on our fr-7100 multi-use core series to insulate fish boxes, bait wells and marine fiberglass bait freezers.
specialized structural panels made of high-density, polyurethane foam reinforced with layers of fiberglass are an excellent replacement for wood and traditional materials. used in marine, industrial, and transportation industries for structural and non-structural applications and shipping to north america, australia, the caribbean, south africa, and europe.
coosa board is high density polyurethane foam with reinforced layers of fiberglass. the result is a material equally or superior in rigidity at a fraction of the weight of plywood. it is truly the premier decking and transom material in the marine industry.
component found in ships: frequently used by military and authority vessels. known to be salvaged from signal sources in low security systems. high density composites pack the materials into extremely dense layers for added protection. in-game description high density composites are a material
marine high density polyethelyne. it's resistant to salt water, a wide range of chemicals and uv exposure, and unlike other alternatives, marine board doesn't splinter, crack, delaminate, rot, swell or absorb water. even under heavy foot traffic on yacht decks, marine board remains virtually maintenance free.
4 figure 1 comparison of the maximum density of the new composite material with those of common metals. the new polymer-metal composites density of 11 g/cc matches that of generally available lead alloy.
transoms are built from high-density, reinforced penske xtreme board for superior strength and longevity. upholstery features high-density foam with composite backing covered in 34oz. marine grade vinyl. decks have non-skid surfaces.
4 lb density urethane foam. product information: free rise density: 4.0 lbs per cubic ft. expansion rate: approx. 15x liquid volume buoyancy flotation : 58 lbs per cubic ft. *physical properties: parallel compressive strength: 90
we stock divinycell pvc foam, balsa core, coremat, and marine grade plywoods for use in composite construction. fiberglass supply - carbon fiber and composite supplies for the 21st century join now
seaboard products weather the storm with our plastic marine board material. seaboard utility is a low-cost alternative that has a closed/small cell structure so it is non-absorbent. seaboard pvc has a high strength-to-weight ratio, is insect-resistant, and has the optimal density for superior stiffness, impact and fastening. endurabond has seven trust structural support and surface adhesion characteristics.
g10 fiberglass is used in marine applications due to its superior strength, moisture resistance, and excellent electrical and fire insulation. it makes excellent non-corrosive backing plates for high load deck hardware or bond to engine room bulkheads to hold mounting brackets. g10 boards are sold in 1/4 and 1/2 inch thickness.
core cell is a tough, damage tolerant a500 foam core with a 5 lb. / cu. ft. density. excellent for hull and deck core replacement and anywhere that a robust non-wood core is desired. good ductility, especially good for hull bottoms, will contour to curved shapes.
suitable for use on a boat, on an rv, or maybe even for a project around your home, marine lumber is high-density polyethylene that is stabilized to resist saltwater, chemicals, and sunlight. it will not rot or delaminate, and is easily cut, routed, shaped and drilled, using standard woodworking tools.
foam core materials in the marine industry by trevor gundberg, composite materials engineer with diab inc. continued from page 1. foam core properties and applications. while core shear stiffness and strength are paramount in sandwich construction, other properties are also important.
structural foam core. renicell is a high-density polycarbamate foam, a modified polyurethane, developed for applications where high compressive properties are required at a competitive price. its polymer network is made from a polyester and polyether blend producing a foam with excellent static mechanical properties.
our high density polyurethane marine board is ideally suited for the harsh environment associated with marine applications. dont settle for inferior substrates such as marine plywood. our high density marine board is a closed cell rigid foam that is environmentally friendly and impervious to salt water, paints, oils and solvents.
ductile pvc foams, sometimes referred to as linear, have higher shear elongation to break, typically in excess of 40%. however, ductile foams have lower physical properties, heat and solvent resistance for a given density. marine grade rigid pvc foams can be processed up to 180f and used continuously up to 160f.
