3D|CORE™ PET TECHNICAL DATA Status: 01.02.2021 FOAM TYPE (1): The values above are the actual values of the suppliers of the precursor material. We cannot give a guarantee for the quality of the values and the related measurements. 3D|CORE primarily evaluates the properties of processing of the individual foam system knowing that the quality of the foam core is essential for the quality of the composite. The size of cavities and the properties have a major influence of the final part. Please regard that every part requires its own calculation of strength and component testing....
