Diab Enhances Ultra-High Performance Core Material Range

08 January 2007

Core materials specialist Diab has expanded its Divinycell HP range of core materials with the addition of a low density version.

Designated HP60, Diab say that it offers all the advantages of the existing HP range, but with a nominal density of just 65 kg/m3 (4.1 lb/ft3), it will allow further weight reductions in advanced sandwich composite structures.

The main application areas for the new material will be the wind energy and marine markets, especially those companies using prepregs. Diab maintains that the high compressive strength and modulus of HP60 allows it to resist the buckling loads experienced in wind blades whereas its high service life temperature makes it ideal for dark coloured decks and superstructures.

Divinycell HP60 is compatible with the majority of epoxy prepregs and can also be used for closed moulding processes such as resin infusion and RTM where high exothermic temperatures can be encountered.
