DIAB Reveals Latest Recyclable PET Cores at JEC Europe 2015

03 March 2015

DIAB will show a variety of high-performance structural core materials for a multitude of applications, including its new recyclable PET Cores, at JEC Europe 2015.

“DIAB was built on invention and customer-driven product development which continues to be at the heart of our business”, said Roger Jansson, Products & Marketing Manager at DIAB.

“At JEC Europe 2015, we will be showcasing several exciting innovations. One of them is our new, exceptionally tough Divinycell HM-range. This material can absorb high dynamic impacts and slamming loads, which makes it ideal for extremely demanding applications. It is for example a perfect choice for fast going, highly loaded marine hulls.”

DIAB says visitors will be able to see its two recyclable new PET cores. “PET foam opens up a great number of possibilities as a core material”, said Jansson. “It is lightweight, stable yet flexible, offers a great compressive strength and is temperature resistant.”

DIAB will also present two new finishing options; GPL1 and GSC30/GRV2. It explains that GPL1 features optimised grooves and perforations to minimise resin consumption and thereby achieves additional weight savings. It says GSC30/GRV2 facilitates fast and reliable infusion, reducing cost and saving labour.

“At DIAB, we’re kind of addicted to innovation”, said Jansson. “Right now, our R&D department is working on a new structural core material with exceptionally fine cell structure. When released at the end of this year, we expect it to change the entire concept of sandwich core materials and take sandwich composite engineering to a new level.”

DIAB is exhibiting in Hall 7.3, Stand D49.
