Sandwich panels for transportation, containing flax reinforced surface layers

Sandwich panels for transport containers using flax in the surface layer were made. A sandwich panel consists of two rigid, thin surface layers, and a thick, light and brittle core material. This construction gives the sandwich exceptional good flexural strength in relation to its low weight. The surface layers were manufactured by vacuum injection using 6 layers of uniaxial DOS fabric. The laminates were glued onto a XPS (expanded polystyrene) core.
