Marineware Ltd have introduced Core-Cell structural foam into their range of Composite materials currently available.

Core-Cell is designed specifically for the marine industry, and uses SAN polymers rather than conventional PVC formulae.

Core-Cell claims to offer better handling and machining characteristics, surpassing the stiffness, impact strength and heat distortion temperatures of PVC. Core-Cell does not out-gas and is compatible with all resin types.

Various densities are available to meet the performance and strength demands of different projects, and Core-Cell is type approved by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Lloyds Register of Shipping, Germanischer Lloyds, and the DNV.

The two Assa Abloy entries were designed by Farr Yacht Design and built by Green Marine in the UK using female moulds to keep hull weight to a minimum. “”Amer Sports Too”” is a Bruce Farr design and is crewed by an all female team. “”Amer Sports One”” has an all male crew, and is designed by German Frers, Jr. Both yachts were built by Composite Works in France using Core-Cell. Core-Cell was also used on the Volvo boats because of its toughness and structural integrity.
