Core Materials (MacroCore)
The impressive mechanical properties of ESS syntactic materials provide strength and structural integrity at a significantly lower weight per volume than most traditional materials. In addition, exceptional thermal protection and resistance to water absorption make syntactic foam the ideal solution for many Marine, Defense, off-shore and mining applications.
MacroCore™ is a advanced composite syntactic for demanding core applications. The toughened macrosphere matrix provides far greater stiffness, strength, impact and shock properties than standard core materials. It is ideally suited for composite-to-metal joints; a well-documented area of concern in all composite structures. As a closed cell structure, the core easily processes in all composite applications including vacuum bag, RTM, and pultrusion without increasing overall density.
