    Abstract: The present invention relates to composite materials and the use thereof as energy resistant, for example blast-resistant, materials. Preferred aspects of the invention relate to layered composite panels comprising solid foam materials which have both a blast attenuation function and an anti-ballistic function. In further aspects, the invention provides novel composite panels which are suitable for use as blast resistant and/or anti-ballistic materials. In some examples described, the layered composite panel comprises a polymeric material (10) bonded to a first solid open-cell foam panel (12), and a cured polymeric material (14) penetrates a surface of the first solid open-cell foam panel (12).

  • Publication number: 20130216796
    Abstract: The present invention relates to non-combustible composite panels, comprising two outer layers (24) and a core (10, 16). Moreover, the invention provides a method for manufacturing of non-combustible composite panels. The amount of organic ingredients within the core, is reduced insofar as to allow for a heat of combustion adequate to reach non-flammability, whilst providing sufficient flexibility for the composite panel. Magnesium hydroxide is implemented within the core to obtain extraordinary flame retardation. In order to manufacture the inventive composite panels a continuous press (34) is utilised replacing extruders (14) known by the state of the art.
