Foam Core Fiberglass Reinforced Composite Material

TYCOR® — a Superior Composite Core Solution. The TYCOR® family of engineered composite core products, including TYCOR W and TYCOR G are used to produce lightweight, high strength sandwich structures in a wide range of markets from wind turbine blades to truck bodies, railcar decks, military shelters, bridge decks, cargo ship floors, temporary mats and runways.

TYCOR fiber reinforced composite core technology delivers higher structural performance, enables better design solutions and delivers greater cost efficiencies, especially when compared to balsa and PVC foam cores. Our composite core technology combines fiberglass and closed-cell foam in an engineered architecture to create a very efficient sandwich core solution. Specifically designed for resin infusion processes, TYCOR’s WIP infusion grooves allow the resin to move quickly and efficiently throughout each panel ensuring high quality infusion of the sandwich panels’ internal structure.

Whether it’s wind turbine blades, boat hulls, bridge decks, or panel products, TYCOR cores offer the most cost effective, high performance solutions available.  The family of balanced and unbalanced orthotropic products covers a wide range of properties and enables designers and manufacturers to move less resin to the mold and more profit to the bottom line.
