About AIREX® T10.60

AIREX® T10.60 is a new light-weight version of the successful and innovative AIREX® T10 product family. AIREX® T10.60 is a very low-density foam core that excels with its homogeneous cell structure and its highly-oriented properties. The cells are oriented to maximize the vertical compression properties that are important in sandwich application. Furthermore, the shear properties in the sheets’ length direction by far exceed the values of all comparable products.

AIREX® T10.60 can be used in countless sandwich applications where lightweight and cost-efficiency are prerequisites for a successful product design. Target segments are trucks, nacelles, building and construction, among others.
