Another product has been added to the high-performance foam line by 3A Composites. The new product - Airex TegraCore – combines the property of lowest density with fire resistance, damage tolerance, moisture resistance, and formability. Airex TegraCore is based on a thermoplastic polymer, which allows easy thermoforming into complex shapes.

Fire resistance, which depends on a combination of flammability, heat energy release, smoke development, and toxicity, is a crucial characteristic necessary in demanding applications like aircraft interiors, components in railways and other public transport vehicles. Especially, the (OSU) heat release test is challenging to comply with, which has been cleared by Airex TegraCore.

Damage tolerance – a feature necessary to ensure robust resilience to unforeseen incidents, in combination with moisture resistance – allows a long lifetime even in challenging environments such as aircraft cabins.

Airex TegraCore is based on a thermoplastic polymer, which allows easy thermoforming into complex shapes, also enabling all-thermoplastic sandwich features for new curved designs.

"Airex TegraCore extends our portfolio not only in high-performance but also in the lightweight core material offering. We strive to generate new products that help industries and our customers to become greener. By realising great weight-saving potential in addition to sustainable materials, our products can lead to a better fuel economy and environmental impact," said Eric Gauthier, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials.
