Foam core composites are a great way to produce extremely lightweight composite structures. Extremely popular in boats and airplanes, DragonPlate foam cores are ideal for webs and stiffeners due to its high stiffness, while maintaining its light weight and low water absorption. In addition, carbon fiber foam core laminates have good sound and thermal insulation. DragonPlate foam cores are available in gloss, matte or textured finish on one side, with a textured finish on the other to facilitate bonding. DragonPlate now offers different foam cores to better meet your design requirements.

DragonPlate carbon fiber C70-40 Airex foam core is a unique closed cell, cross-linked polymer foam core. This is a lightweight structural foam that has good impact strength. While great for high strength applications which require a low panel weight, this is a carbon fiber foam core laminate that can resist crushing forces and supply an adequate mounting surface. The lay-up design is quasi-isotropic, consisting of three layers of carbon fiber on each side of a Airex foam core center. Available in gloss, matte or texture on one side and texture on other side for bonding to other surfaces. For foam specifications, please refer to the official Airex Data Sheet.

an inexpensive, non-structural foam core. DragonPlate Depron foam core composites are designed to be extremely lightweight. A Depron carbon fiber foam core laminate has the strength and stiffness of a carbon fiber laminate, but lacks the compressive strength and crushing resistance of a structural foam core. The lay-up design offered is one or three layers of carbon fiber on each side of a 6mm Depron foam core center. Available in gloss, matte or texture on one side and texture on other side for bonding to other surfaces.

DragonPlate’s carbon fiber Divinycell foam core utilizes Divinycell H100 high performance core. This is a medium density structural foam with very high strength to weight ratio. With very large strength properties, this carbon fiber foam core laminate is an excellent choice for heavier duty applications where lighter density foams struggle. Divinycell H100 is also an excellent damage tolerant foam and is ideal for impact applications. The lay-up design is quasi-isotropic, consisting of three layers of carbon fiber on each side of a Divinycell foam core center. Available in gloss, matte or texture on one side and texture on other side for bonding to other surfaces. For foam specifications, please refer to the official Divinycell Foam Data Sheet.
