C A L S foam cores can be bonded to a wide range of materials during or after the molding process. Bonds with metal, wood, plastic substrates are especially strong, but most importantly it creates a strong bond with fiberglass and carbon laminate skins. This technical advancement ensures an end product with even greater bonding properties than ever before.
These bonding properties allow encapsulation of various materials inside C A L S cores, such as carbon and graphite fibers, Kevlar® and Nomex® fibers or sheets, and almost any other lightweight stiffener or strengthening agents. We can also add a thicker polyurethane film on the surface to fully encapsulate the foam core and the stiffening particles, fibers or sheets dispersed inside the part.
