Thermoplastic Composite Panels for Marine Applications

Hammerhead™ Marine Composite Panels

Streamlines Marine Manufacturing

Hammerhead™ Marine Composite Panels, made from thermoplastic continuous glass fiber-reinforced face sheets and polyester foam core, are engineered to provide simplified installation, long-lasting components, and overall cost reduction for boat manufacturers.

These versatile panels can be used in a variety of boat building applications including: interior bulkheads, decking, ceilings, hatches, covers, cabinetry and fittings. The exceptional strength-to-weight ratio provides lightweight yet strong structural performance for increased payloads. And they are resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light, chemicals, moisture degradation, and rot to withstand harsh marine conditions.

The property table below represents a sample of panel configurations. For complete product information, please download the Hammerhead Application and Installation Guide.
