Explore Divinycell core materials and our solutions at METSTRADE 2022

Diab continues to serve the market with lightweight solutions and smart digital tools to create sustainable applications that give our customers a competitive edge.
At METSTRADE in Amsterdam, November 15-17, 2022, we are excited to present new materials and technical solutions that will make our customers’ products lighter than ever. Here are some of the product highlights and latest innovations that we will present.

Divinycell core materials for marine applications

Divinycell HM is a high-performance structural core designed for fast marine hulls where higher toughness is required. It combines a very high shear strength with an outstanding shear elongation.

Divinycell MC60 is the innovative next generation structural core with best-in-class mechanical properties to low weight. The material’s unique microcell structure renders substantial weight reduction of the laminate, thanks to lower core density combined with an exceptionally low level of resin uptake. The minimal cell size has proven to give an 80% reduction in resin uptake.

Both materials are compatible with virtually all commonly used resins and manufacturing methods.

Introducing Advanced kitting for maximum weight savings

Diab's innovative Advanced kits offer an optimized fit in the mould, reduced resin consumption, and improved cosmetics for infusion and prepreg applications, making them lighter than ever. Using a CNC proprietary cut profile for each kit detail, the core is cut partway through its thickness, eliminating the need for a scrim backing. The benefits include a very smooth surface finish, 3D formability and decreased resin uptake. Suitable for lightweight and surface finish critical applications in Marine, Industry & Aerospace.

New tools and technical support

How strong is your Diab cored sandwich? Now you can configure and check your sandwich laminate's strength and stiffness and compare it with other sandwich or single-skin solutions. Our latest addition to MyDiab, the Sandwich Comparison Tool, allows you to make your own calculations and comparisons.

A powerful team of engineers, product- and process specialists are the backbone of our new Diab Application Center. They will help you realize the total value of your composite designs and are ready to team up with you to make your products lighter than ever. They can help you with selecting the suitable core material, laminate design and optimization to prototyping and short production, testing, kit-engineering, and kit-production.
