The DuFlex lightweight sandwich panel solution is a composite panel system that minimizes weight and maximizes mechanical properties. The panels are made of rigid balsa wood butt or structural and non-structural foam, and laminated with a high performance epoxy resin reinforced with a multi-axial film of glass or carbon fibre.
Technical characteristics of the panels
By using epoxy resin instead of polyester resin, a reduction in laminate thickness is achieved while improving moisture and wear tolerance. Epoxy resin has better resistance to moisture and wear.
Joining the panels
DuFlex panels can be supplied with both long edges pre-machined for easy assembly. The Z-joint is structurally efficient and results in a smooth and even surface profile. The Z-joint should be bonded with a high density epoxy mixture.
