New CORKcore material


I am a new (Portuguese) guy on the Forum,

I want to tell that we have developed a new core material based in Cork.

This new Corkcore sheets, named NL-10, have been successfully used in hand/spray lay-up and RTM techniques. They are being used in boat production.

The main advantage is the flexibility of the Corkcore that can be used in curved surfaces, with no cuts or groves, maintaining the necessary thickness regularity all along the entire surface, even on the difficult zones.

The cork behavior is well known on the cork stoppers (years in contact with wine with no great mechanical/physical/mental changes lucky ones !!!).

If you want more info/samples of this new core material, just post.

Welcome aboard Alex.

Please review the rules on commercial vendors posting on Cruisers Forum.

I've already requested a "Vendor" account for you.

Interesting product. I'd like a sample. You can send me a Personal Message on here and I'll forward my coordinates.
Yours Aye! Rick
