AIREX® T92 is a thermoplastic structural rigid foam with closed cells, highly suitable for lamination using all types of resins and processes. The AIREX® T92 manufacturing process results in a structural core material with very consistent properties. Shear strain/damage tolerance is greatly improved and allows utilization in most structural sandwich constructions. T92 is very easy to process mechanically, can be thermoformed and is highly heat resistant.

The foam is ideal for use with various prepreg systems at higher temperatures. It is very chemically stable, does not absorb water and shows no post-expansion. AIREX® T92 features an excellent resin uptake, which can be further reduced in combination with our SealX technology, setting totally new standards in weight resin savings and costs.
