AIREX® R63 - damage tolerant structural foam

AIREX® R63 is a closed-cell, linear thermoplastic rigid foam with extremely high damage tolerance and very durable characteristics. The foam achieves above-average adhesion of face sheets and can be formed into simple 3D structures without being heated. AIREX® R63 is an excellent core material for dynamically stressed sandwich structures that absorb impact energy

Applications
  • Boat and ship construction (hull bottom, side walls)
  • Rail and road vehicles (control stand, side skirts, collision protection)
  • Aerospace (explosion-proof freight containers)
  • Recreation (surfboards, canoes, kayaks)
  • Industrial components (containers, shelters, helmets)
Properties
  • Extremely impact resistant (no brittle fracture behavior)
  • Excellent thermoformability (cold and warm)
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Excellent fatigue properties
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Non-decomposable
  • Excellent sound absorption and thermal insulation

Processing
  • Hand lamination / spray lay-up
  • Adhesive bonding
  • Thermoforming
  • Vacuum infusion
