SAERfoam® Series

SAERfoam is our structural core material with 3D glass bridges. SAERfoam replaces conventional core materials such as PVC, PET and balsa in an innovative manner: Ultralight foam (PU/PE/PIR) is combined with 3D glass reinforcements. The result is SAERfoam, a hybrid core material with customizable mechanical properties and extremely low weight.

The SAERfoam series consists of the new standard styles SAERfoam 80 and SAERfoam 60 as well as the SAERfoam + edition. SAERfoam 80 has been developed to improve the handling of structures such as boat hulls and decks and large industrial parts made in infusion. SAERfoam 60 is more dedicated to RTM process because it preserves molds. The SAERfoam + edition includes all non standard articles and allows customized adaptions – even fire protection solutions in combination with SAERTEX LEO are possible.
  1. Stiff and strong product
    Very high shear modulus, which reduces deflection and allows thickness reduction  –
    SAERfoam exhibits up to four times greater shear modulus in comparison with PVC and PET.
  2. Economical solution
    SAERfoam offers the most economical solution. Lower material cost than PVC ; lower resin consumption than PET.
  3. Simple to process
    SAERfoam is easy and inexpensive to cut. In curved shapes, the resin consumption furthermore can be reduced by around 1 kg/m² thanks to the natural flexibility of the plain sheets which minimizes the need for a drapable version.
  4. Break-through draping solution without print through
    SAERfoam panels are more flexible before being impregnated with resin, they can pass large curved designs without drapable version - lower resin consumption and lower print through.
  5. No water absorption into the core
    Closed cell core: For areas below the waterline, no water absorption into the core in case of failure of outer skin
