Amber Composites announced on the 23rd of March 2011 that it is now offering Rohacell high-performance foam core, compatible with most popular composite processing methods and ideal for use with prepreg.



The unique properties of Rohacell® high-performance foam core enable efficient machining processes, one-step cure cycles, and easy thermoforming. Rohacell® is free of CFCs and will withstand temperatures to 180ºC and pressures to 0.7 MPa (100 psi). Amber is currently offering all densities of the Rohacell® IG and Rohacell® IG-F grades.


“Rohacell® core is an excellent complement to our own range of prepreg composite materials” said Andrew Dugmore, Amber Composites Sales Director, “and shows our commitment to providing customers with the highest quality products available. Our full suite of composite materials - initial patterns (via epoxy and PU tooling boards), tooling and component prepreg, sealers, release agents, adhesive films, consumables and core materials - enables Amber to meet the needs of the most demanding customers”.


“We chose Amber to be our official UK distributor given their great reputation for providing high-quality material and expertise to composites customers,” said Uwe Lang at Evonik Industries, makers of Rohacell®.
