Highest Strength Foam
Looking to make a strong composite part? DIAB® closed cell vinyl foam is an excellent choice. 5lb vinyl foams add significant strength to a laminate when used as a sandwich core. With compressive strengths over 200psi, these foams offer more strength to a laminate than light weight honeycombs with only a minor weight penalty. This allows them to be used extensively in applications where ultimate laminate strength is of the utmost importance. Still significantly lighter weight than a traditional composite lamination, 5lb foams are used extensively in high strength structural building, aerospace, and design applications.
Offering significant strength and impact resistance to a laminate, 3/8" thick foam is commonly used for exterior vehicle structures, boat hulls, and bulkheads. 1/2" thick foam offers the highest strength to a composite part possible. Applications for 1/2" vinyl foam include load bearing structural supports, structural walls, unsupported flooring, and other high strength parts.
Vinyl Foams are compatible with all of our resins and can be easily thermoformed with a heat gun or oven. DIAB® Divinycell H80 5 Lb. Density.
