Core materials for motor boats
Whether constructed for racing or pleasure, motorboats, RIBs and private fishing boats, all benefit from the light weight and formability of sandwich composites.
Hulls, decks, bulkheads, floors and superstructures, as well as transoms, engine beds and winch bases, can be made lighter, stronger and stiffer with our solutions.
Our core materials include many benefits, such as good fatigue life, low resin uptake and prepreg compatibility. They allow for good impact resistance and damage tolerance and high repairability, and the closed cells significantly reduces water uptake.
The products from Diab are easily formable and have great machinability, which, in combination with a wide range of finishes, offer a design freedom and beautiful surface treatment that is far superior to that with traditional materials. In addition, our kitting options make manufacturing easier and more accurate. The result is a durable boat with long service life, reduced fuel consumption, low flammability and good resale value. At the end of life, the GL-, DNV- and LR-certified materials can be recycled.
