FIBERGLASS BOATBUILDING: Cored Laminates - Wavetrain25 May 2011 ... So far in our exploration of fiberglass boatbuilding, we've only discussed how to create a solid glass laminate. Very few ... Except in a cored boat laminate, unlike an I-beam, which is 100% steel, we are (again) creating a composite structure, as the internal core is made of a different substance than the external skins. This is often .... The most exotic lightweight cores have a honeycomb structure and are made of various materials, including paper, aluminum, and plastic.

Materials - Aquidneck Custom CompositesWe use a product known as S-glass coupled with SAN, and PVC foams to construct our Atlantic 57 hull, decks, and structure. We build various fabrications from carbon fiber and fiberglass. Core materials used at ACC vary from cross-linked PVC foams such as AIREX, and SAN foam sold by the name of Core-Cell. We also use Nomex honeycomb for hi-strength super lightweight applications. Solid fiberglass plate and compression tubes are used to install hardware and systems in our ...

Composite Sandwich Core Materials | Fibre Glastcomposite sandwich construction employs a lightweight core with a flexural strength and flexural modulus exceeding that of the skin laminates alone. ... The inner skin is laminated onto the top of the core material effectively sealing it. ... Nomex honeycomb honeycomb is a series of cells, nested together to form panels similar in appearance to the cross-sectional slice of a beehive. In its expanded form, honeycomb is 90-99 percent open space. Nomex honeycomb is fire retardant, ...

Making Your Boat Structures Lighter, Stiffer, Stronger - PlascoreThe stiffness of honeycomb laminations and Plascore Board allows boat builders to use less material, reducing weight while increasing speed and cargo capacity. Stiffness increases exponentially compared to single sheet material. The use of honeycomb core(s) creates a dramatic increase in stiffness with very little weight gain. Save Weight and Money The best of both worlds: Plascore PP honeycomb and Aluminum honeycomb are not only lightweight cores, they are more ...

Sandwich Core Composite Materials - Jamestown DistributorsItems 1 - 11 of 11 ... Sandwich core construction offers high strength to weight ratios. Sandwich core construction uses lightweight cores with flexural modulus and strength properties far greater than the materials used as skin laminates. Choose from corecell, divinycell, balsa wood, double cut core, grid scored, penske board, and other core materials for laminating. Used extensively in boat building.

Composites in Boat Accessories and Hardware : CompositesWorldProbably no other industry, to date, has seen such universal application of composite materials as the marine industry. It is common for boatbuilders to mold one-piece hull and deck structures in sailboats and motoryachts of all sizes and price ranges. In racing vessels and high-end yachts, composites are regularly used to form masts, rigging, spars and booms. Recently, composites have even penetrated sail fabrication (see CT's sister magazine High-Performance composites, ...
