Ultimate materials

Since September 2019 Forest Trafic has incorporated a new range of products called Forest-THLite® manufactured with variable density polymer foam.

This new line of products represents the completion of the research of a replacement of birch plywood in projects that require a maximum resistance to biological agents and an extreme durability to outdoor environments. Furthermore, it can be a possibility for those uses needing lightweight but keeping high resistance and high modulus of elasticity.

Some general features for the cores of this new Product Forest-THLite:

  • Good reaction to fire
  • Does not harbor mold or fungus
  • Very high resistance to corrosion
  • Guaranteed rot free
  • Self-extinguishing
  • Good adhesive substrate
  • Closed cell structure
  • Lightness
  • Low expansion and contraction ratio
  • Lifetime buoyancy
  • High mechanical resistance
  • Completely impervious to water
  • High impact strength
  • High thermal insulation
  • High acoustic insulation
  • Resistant to contamination

 

The Forest-THLite® panel can be presented in multiple configurations with 5 different cores:

  • Raw. Manufactured with polymer foam. Available in a density range of 144 and 480 kg/m3 (depending on client requirements)
  • Wide-Range. Manufactured with polymer foam and a light-density fiberglass lay-up. This material is a good choice in niche applications, such as floorings and ceilings. Available in a density range of 192 and 640 kg/m3 (depending on client requirements and upon thickness required).
  • Resistant.Manufactured with polymer foam and a medium-density fiberglass lay-up. This material is acceptable for structural loading application. Available in a density range of 288 and 384 kg/m3 (depending on client requirements and upon thickness required).
  • Superb.Manufactured with polymer foam and a high-density fiberglass lay-up. This material is acceptable for structural loading application. Available in a density range of 384 and 704 kg/m3 (depending on client requirements and upon thickness required).
  • Ultimate.Manufactured with polymer foam and an ultra-high-density fiberglass lay-up. This material is recommended for projects where the utmost load resistances are required. Available in a density range of 384 and 736 kg/m3 (depending on client requirements and upon thickness required).

 

All these materials can be coated with the usual laminates:

  • Aluminum
  • Polypropylene
  • HPL
  • PVC
  • Natural wood veneer
  • Phenolic compact
  • Polyester
  • Cork
  • Rubber
  • Linoleum
  • Marble
  • Plywood

There is a multitude of possibilities for achieving the physio-mechanical and/or esthetic requirements of our clients.

Since 01/09/2019, all this products are available for your pre-order.
