Hatches out of Plascore, Finally......

Comment by Rogerio Martin on May 4, 2016 at 4:44pm

Do not forget to tie, will be light. What do you think of this plastcore? I saw some guys using it here, but the hive was more closed

Comment by Lee Dilkes on May 4, 2016 at 5:19pm

Tie? As in use CSM first?

I love the stuff, yes very light and strong. We'll probably build another cockpit and tender with it.

Comment by Robert Hughes on May 5, 2016 at 3:17am

It will be interestingto hear what Plascore is like to work with.  I'm doing some experiments with sandwich construction using glass or carbon fibre over a PVC foam core at the moment.

Comment by Lee Dilkes on May 5, 2016 at 5:32pm

Hey Robert,

Plascore is great if you use it correctly, its easy to cut and its structural integrity is far superiour to foam. The secret, like with most sandwich constructs is to make sure your resin to fibre ratios are right.

Ideally a vacum table would be the go.
The only real down side of this stuff is that it doesn't like overly compound curves.

Will keep you posted.

(its even used for missile fins)
