3A Composites Core Materials launches AIREX® TegraCore™ to complement its high-performance foam portfolio

News | 20.02.2020

The 3A Composites is welcoming another member to our high-performance foam family: AIREX® TegraCore™.

Thanks to its outstanding combination of lowest density with excellent properties in fire resistance, damage tolerance, moisture resistance, and formability, AIREX® TegraCore™ complements 3A Composites portfolio.

Fire resistance – a combination of flammability, heat energy release, smoke development, and toxicity – is a crucial characteristic necessary in demanding applications like aircraft interiors, components in railways and other public transport vehicles. Especially the (OSU) heat release test is challenging to comply with, but an easy pass for AIREX® TegraCore™.

Damage tolerance – a feature crucially necessary to ensure robust resilience to unforeseen incidents, in combination with moisture resistance – allows a long lifetime even in challenging environments such as aircraft cabins.

AIREX® TegraCore™ is based on a thermoplastic polymer, which allows easy thermoforming into complex shapes, also enabling all-thermoplastic sandwich features for new curved designs.

"AIREX® TegraCore™ extends our portfolio not only in high-performance but also in the lightweight core material offering. We strive to generate new products that help industries and our customers to become greener. By realizing great weight-saving potential in addition to sustainable materials, our products can lead to a better fuel economy and environmental impact." said Eric Gauthier, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials.

Sustainable innovation, high quality, global reach, ensured availability, and close collaboration with customers drive 3A Composites to its success of becoming the leading Core Materials manufacturer.
