Fiberglass foam core panels are a popular sandwich composite panel that perfectly combines volume and strength. Its high-cost performance makes it replace traditional metal or wood in many fields. It is already an integral part of the modern materials field. TOPOLO is committed to the development of new composite materials. At present, we have developed various types of FRP foam composite panels, which greatly meet the pursuit of products with different performances.
|Skin Material||Thermoset FRP Sheet, Thermoplastic CFRT Sheet|
|Surface Color||RAL Color Series|
|Core Material||XPS Foam, PU foam, PET foam, PVC foam, EPP Foam, MPP Foam|
|Processing||CNC machining, Embedded structure|
|Application||Campers, box trucks, buildings, furniture, boats.|
Structure of Fiberglass Foam Sandwich Panels
The skin of fiberglass foam panels is FRP material, and the FRP material can be thermoset FRP sheet or thermoplastic CFRT sheet; the middle core material is foam board, usually made of XPS, PET, PVC, EPP, PU, MPP, and other foam boards. The skin and core are held together by compression molding using high-quality glue.
Typical Features of Fiberglass Foam Core Panels
- Thermal insulation: The thermal conductivity of the closed-cell foam core material is low, which can effectively keep the temperature inside the panel in a constant range.
- Lightweight: The density of FRP and foam board is very low, and the lightest foam core can even reach 30~40kg/m³.
- High strength: FRP is famous for its strength and toughness, and the FRP foam sandwich panel can effectively offset the general impact force.
- Waterproof and moisture-proof: the water absorption rate of closed-cell foam is extremely low, while FRP basically completely isolates water.
- Easy to cut: This is a huge advantage of FRP foam core panels compared to metal composite panels, which greatly facilitates processing, such as cutting and drilling.
FRP Facing Materials
The general-purpose FRP panel is a thermosetting FRP material, and its surface can be coated with a gel-coat. TOPOLO has developed a new type of thermoplastic FRP material, which we call CFRT (Continuous Fiberglass Reinforced Thermoplastic), which is a lighter and stronger FRP product.
Different Foam Core Materials Available
Different foam core materials have different physical properties, which core material to choose depends on the specific application of the customer’s product. TOPOLO offers the following fiberglass foam core sandwich panels.
Embedded Structure Enhances Strength
In order to enhance the strength of the panel and prevent the FRP foam sandwich panel from deforming due to its large area or breaking due to its own weight, structural reinforcement materials, such as wood, metal pipes, plastic pipes, and plastic components, are usually embedded inside the panel. Doing so also facilitates screw installation and electrical wire routing.
CNC Machining for Fiberglass Foam Core Sandwich Panels
TOPOLO adopts advanced five-axis CNC machining, which can cut, drill and mill the panel, which can not only process complex panel shapes, but also greatly improve the machining accuracy and improve production efficiency.
As a new type of composite material, the performance of fiberglass foam sandwich panels is far superior to that of solid composite panels, because of their excellent performance, it is used in many industries, such as RV, trucks, buildings, boats, furniture and other industries. It greatly enhances the performance of these products and greatly reduces production costs.
- FRP Skin foam sandwich panels are used as wall panels, floor, roof panels for campers, caravans, teardrop, truck campers, C class RV, etc.
- Insulation panels for refrigerated trucks and dry cargo trucks.
- Temporary houses, mobile toilets, mobile villas, guard booths, etc.
- FRP foam composite panels are widely used in the floor and wall panels of ships.
