On May 14, DIAB International AB (Laholm, Sweden) unveiled its online Core Selection Guide. Said to be the first of its kind, the tool was developed by DIAB to help customers quickly and easily narrow down their choices to the cores best suited to their applications. The Core Selection Guide is available online at DIAB’s Web site: diabgroup.com/coreselectionguide.
Intuitive navigation and simple instructions guide users through the selection process, based on their chosen industry and/or the factors that apply for their requirements and conditions. Recommended cores are listed with a convenient side-by-side comparison option. Users can review detailed data sheets for their selected products directly via the comparison list. DIAB also designed the Guide to make it easy for users to ask specific questions about any of the cores on their list via a direct contact form.
“Our broad sandwich core material offering, combined with a wide variety of suitable applications, creates an enormous amount of possible sandwich designs,” says Roger Jansson, group product manager at DIAB. “This tool is developed to narrow down the amount of choices and to simplify the selection process when designing with sandwich and composites — both for us and our customers.”
DIAB points out that, although it is intended to be detailed, accurate and easy to use, the Core Selection Guide is nonetheless only a reference tool. The company recommends consulting its experts for a thorough evaluation before making a final material choice.
