High Modulus Launches the Hi-Panel

20 May 2009

High Modulus has launched the Hi-Panel, a lightweight, pre-fabricated composite panel, designed for a range of applications including boats, bridges, roofing, flooring, holding tanks, and flatbeds.

Standard Hi-Panels are made of an infused E-glass/polyester/foam core sandwich laminate, and come in two different foam densities and a range of thicknesses. Custom panels are also available using polyester, vinyl ester, or epoxy resins, PVC, balsa, PET or Nidaplast cores, and various fabric options.

Hi-Panels can be supplied as a B3 SmartPac – High Modulus converts the 2D or 3D component design into cut-files, then cuts the panels on CNC machines to the exact shapes required for the build, which are supplied to customers with a comprehensive construction manual and an integral quality assurance process.

Infusion has been chosen as the standard manufacturing method as it has been proven to offer a more consistent fibre wet-out compared with hand lay-up methods, leading to superior performance. A sandwich panel is typically suitable for applications where weight is important as it maintains excellent stiffness and strength properties at a significantly lower weight than a solid laminate alternative.
