Making your products stronger, lighter and more competitive
The benefits of sandwich composite solutions in transportation are obvious. Lighter designs result in decreased fuel consumption, higher payloads and longer range — all having a positive impact on the environment. Composite materials are also durable and readily molded to shape.
Diab’s wide range of core materials provides solutions for multiple applications ranging from structural, such as frames and train fronts, to high mechanical properties used in floors of trucks and trains. Diab also provides a core range specifically dedicated to public transport interiors, meeting the tough regulations for fire, smoke and toxicity.
In addition to our products, we support your efforts with technical expertise, structural engineering services and applications training.
Diab’s sandwich cores and infusion process make caravans stronger and more fuel-efficient.
DK Composites teams with Diab to lighten monorail structures, such as ceilings developed to save more than 400 kg per train carriage.
With the fastest 75m acceleration run in the country, at a blistering 3.807s, the REV2 became the fastest FSAE race car in America in 2016.
