Panelite™ Cast Polymer Series panels use the same honeycomb core technology as Laminated Series panels, but instead of using pre-fabricated facings laminated to the honeycomb, facings are cast directly onto the cores. Although the casting process yields a slightly heavier panel, at 2.5 pounds per square foot, it also provides a much stronger core to facing bond while maintaining an excellent strength to weight ratio. This makes the Cast Polymer panels ideal for a wide range of applications, including light load bearing and furniture applications,
vertical walls, doors, and ceilings.
Cast Polymer Series panels offer the greatest design versatility of the Panelite™ range.
