TYCOR – FIBER REINFORCED CORES

TYCOR G
For Advanced Composite Structures

TYCOR® G

Our fiber reinforced composite cores use advanced three-dimensional fiber architecture and cost effective automated manufacturing processes to produce lightweight, high strength, robust sandwich structures for a range of applications including truck bodies, railcar decks, military shelters, bridge decks, temporary runway matting and cargo ship freezer floors.

TYCOR G has the structural properties to support concentrated and high shear loads that conventional balsa and foam core products just can’t handle. TYCOR G enables better design solutions and is optimized for greater cost efficiencies. Specifically designed for resin infusion processes, TYCOR’s infusion grooves allow the resin to move quickly and efficiently throughout each panel ensuring high quality infusion of the sandwich panels’ internal structure. TYCOR G can also be tailored to meet unique performance specifications.

Key Performance Advantages

TYCOR performs effectively in flat shapes with less resin absorption than foam and balsa cores. TYCOR is offered in standard core thicknesses to give designers and manufacturers the flexibility to optimize product designs. Milliken is also able to tailor modifications for individual specifications.
