The DIAB Group (Laholm, Sweden and DeSoto, Texas) introduced a new grade of Divinycell Matrix PVC foam core material, called Matrix 10-8. Matrix series cores are designed to deliver high mechanical performance at as low a density as possible to avoid overengineering of applications, says the company. With its compression and shear strength properties and improved temperature resistance for tougher processing conditions, Matrix 10-8 is positioned to perform in wind turbine blades and other structural applications.
