PVC

The Flexyfoam range of PVC Foams is a unique closed cell, crossed linked polymer foam that combines high stiffness and strength to weight ratio's with superior toughness. The fine cell structure provides an excellent bonding surface compatible with most resins. Flexyfoam is easy to use and it can be worked with conventional tools and can be drilled, shaped or cut as appropriate, enabling engineers and composite designers to tailor laminate to meetthe most demanding applications.
