AIREX® C70 - universal structural PVC foam

AIREX® C70 is a closed-cell, cross-linked rigid foam with excellent rigidity and a great stiffness to weight ratio. It is highly durable, has a low water absorption rate, and excellent chemical resistance. It can be processed with all common resin systems and processes. The fine cell structure supports excellent adhesion of face sheets.

AIREX® C70 is the ideal core material for many lightweight sandwich structures subject to dynamic or static loads.

Applications
  • Ship and boat construction (hull, decks, bulkheads, superstructures, interior fittings)
  • Rail and road vehicles (floor and ceiling components, doors, interior fittings, partition walls, side skirts)
  • Wind energy plants (rotor blades, covers, generator casings)
  • Aerospace (fuselage and wing components for sporting aircraft, kitchen trolleys)
  • Recreation (surfboards, snowboards, wakeboards)
  • Industrial components (tools, tanks, pipes, containers, covers)
