WebCore Technologies' TYCOR core material for composites combines glass fibres with closed-cell, low density foam in an engineered architecture. The TYCOR family of products are used to produce lightweight, high strength sandwich structures for a range of applications, including truck bodies, military shelters, bridge decks, and cargo ship floors. TYCOR W has been engineered to provide wind turbine blade designers with a selection of core designs to optimise structural performance, weight and cost.
