Lightweight thermoplastic composite sandwich panels

Do you need sandwich panels for your project? AGESIA develops innovative panel production technologies and produces thermoplastic composite sandwich panels. These panels enable you to construct transportation equipment with minimal weight and maximal performance.

The AGESIA thermoplastic composite sandwich panel

What is a sandwich panel?

The AGESIA structural panel consists of a core which is ‘sandwiched’ between two thermoplastic organosheets.

Material selection

We use high-end PA-6 organosheets instead of UD-tapes to produce structural composite sandwich panels. These organosheets have a glass fibre content of 65%, which results in a unique combination of properties:

  • affordable
  • robust and stiff
  • transformable
  • durable and recyclable
  • allow extra short cycle times
  • light (50% lighter than steel, 30% lighter than aluminium)
  • resistant to fire
  • resistant to high temperature
  • resistant to corrosion

Unique production process

AGESIA developed a (patent-pending) continuous panel production machine to manufacture thermoplastic composite panels.

  1. The thermoplastic organosheets and the core are joint via special techniques.
  2. The thermoplastic composite sandwich panels can be formed and several features can be integrated to realise cost-effective solutions.
  3. The connection systems are integrated to ease welding.
  4. According to the AGESIA engineering philosophy, sandwich panels are structural components.

Applications

Our thermoplastic composite sandwich panels and beams are suited for a wide range of applications in various industries, e.g. transportation, aerospace, automotive and marine. Thanks to these panels and beams, it’s possible to construct cost-effective, lightweight, strong and sustainable transportation equipment.
