A500 is a 5.0 lb. per cubic foot density foam ideal for hand lay-up applications. Its use minimizes the use of resin, saving time and money. It surpasses all previous limits of stiffness, impact strength and heat distortion temperature.
Core-Cell is the first structural foam designed specifically for the marine industry, and uses new SAN polymers rather than conventional PVC formulas derived from 1930's technology.
A500 Core-Cell is very similar to A550 Core-Cell. The only difference is the density, by .5lb/cubic ft.
Available in 2 x 4 ft, 4 x 4 ft and 4 x 8 ft sheets. 4' X 8' sheets must be picked up at our location or shipped via common carrier.
Core-Cell foam has better handling and machining characteristics, does not out-gas and is compatible with all resin types.
Being closed cell, Core-Cell adds safety, comfort and reassurance to ocean going vessels and reduces condensation through insulation.
Core-Cell is preferred by professional builders and has an excellent reputation with amateurs for being easy to form around tight curves, but stiff enough to strip plank between temporary frames.
