Diab Flow & Form Finishing options
A combination of our Flow and Form finishing options where you have a need for both adapting to the shape of your product as well as distribute resin in your production process.
Using a plain sheet is the most effective way to utilize a core. It can be perforated, grooved, or slitted through machining to make it as functional as possible for the application. To distribute resin, there are several options. Perforations avoid air from being trapped under the core, ensuring proper wet-out and bonding to the laminate. Grooved and perforated cores remove the need for additional distribution medium within the laminate or above it.
To create curves, you have formable finishing options. Grid-scored finish makes the core conform easily to the mold for complex shapes. Onedirection cut finish is similar to Grid-scored finish but with cuts in one direction only, creating strips of core. Double-cut finish allows curvature into panels without applying a scrim.
