A thermoplastic sandwich panel is usually made of three layers: a low-density core, and a thin skin-layer bonded to each side. The cores can be honeycomb or a solid filling ones. Materials for the core and skin vary widely and make the sandwich panels in many forms. Composited by light ingredients, these panels are undoubtedly much less weighted, though, strength and stiffness are highly required in their applications. Despite the thickness of PP cores, stuffs in the skins also play an important role in the quality and mechanical properties of final products. In TOPOLO, skins of honeycomb sandwich panels are mainly made of fabric and CFRT (continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic) composites. The following picture shows the comparison of the two materials.
Woven fabric skin sandwich panels produced by TOPOLO feature a high flexural strength and excellent property of thermal insulation. They can be widely used in aeronautics, road vehicles, ships, and civil engineering. For example:
Automotive: truck and trailer cargo, recreational vehicles;
Entertainment utilities: guard panels in GYM and rink floors
Movable facilities: stalls, stands, movable shops, temporary shed in construction sites, shelves, newsstand, portable shower room, etc.
Furniture and office fitment: partition panels, cabinets, doors and floors
