Composite panels for the vehicle construction

Ceilings, walls, doors and floor panels of modern trucks are mainly made of sandwich panels. As opposed to normal metal structures the benefit of these panels is that they may be produced with a significant reduction in weight as well as with an excellent thermal insulation.

Depending on the specific requirements and application we will establish the suitable panel for you, with a multitude of possible material combinations. In practical applications panels with aluminium, reinforced fibres, HPL, PVC, or for instance hard foam panels have been the best selection.


The versatile elements for automotive manufacturing

COSMO Tech - GFK & COSMO Classic - GFK

Depending on the installation situation, different requirements on our lightweight building units can result. Therefore, specific material combinations are required.

 


Ceiling elements

The core requirements on a ceiling element are low weight and high mechanical stiffness.

Exemplary design of elements:

GRP smooth / XPS and/or PUR core / GRP with/without gel coat

Properties:

  • High pressure and bending strength
  • Long-term water resistant
  • Swelling-resistant, i.e. no changes of dimensions
  • Minimum absorption of humidity

Side walls

The side walls ensure the stability of the whole Coffer structure. Depending on the application, however, further properties, e.g. good durability of insulation, could be relevant.

Exemplary design of elements:

GRP smooth / XPS, PUR and/or TK core / GRP with/without gel coat

Properties:

  • Screwable in combination with TK core
  • Individual design as per specification

Floor elements

Despite of low weight, a bottom plate must have high strength and good wearing resistance. These requirements can be met depending on the application by selecting of suitable core materials or top coats.

Exemplary design of elements:

GRP anti-slip / XPS, PUR and/or TK core / GRP smooth

Properties:

  • High pressure and bending strength
  • Long-term water resistant
  • Slipping class 13
  • Environmentally-friendly inserts (, TK is 100% recyclable)
  • Swelling-resistant, i.e. no changes of dimensions
  • Minimum absorption of humidity
