Carbofont is made from a polycarbonate core covered with polyester. The technical difficulty of this panel lies essentially in the process of laying a polyester resin over a polycarbonate core.These two plastics are from different families and are normally incompatible in the manufacture of a composite.
Carbofont is developed for use in the manufacture of semi-trailers. It is tailored to give the same mechanical characteristics as POLYFONT PWL, another panel commonly used in the manufacture of semi-trailers. Because of the structure it is lightweight; a weight saving close to 500 kg can be achieved for a semi-trailer.
The available thicknesses are 14, 17, 20, 25 and 30 mm
