Lycell and PVC Structural Foam


PVC foams for Composites

The use of PVC foams for composite: foam can be installed in aircraft, trains, buses, wind turbines, hovercraft, used to generate shipping furniture, furniture for campers, and manufacturing products for recreation and sports (ski, boards, kayaks, etc.. ).


  • deck, interior panels and superstructures of boats
  • roads and rail transportation structural panels
  • wind turbine blades
  • catering service trolleys

Properties of PVC foams for Composites

Outstanding resistance and strength to weight ratio, good impact strength, low resin absorption, high fatigue resistance, good fire performance (self-extinguishing), good styrene resistance, sound and heat insulation. They are lightweight and do not absorb water.


  • high strength and stiffness to weight ratios
  • good compression strength
  • rot resistant
  • good thermal insulation
  • self-extinguishing


Foam can be machined on standard workshop equipment used for wood and plastic. It is compatible with fibre reinforced processing techniques such as:

  • hand lay-up
  • fibre spraying
  • Vacuum injection
  • adhesive bonding
  • thermoforming
  • prepreg processing
