Understanding Laminated Composite Panels

What are Laminated Composite Panels?

Laminated composite panels are panels that are reinforced with layers of fiberglass laminate substrate materials to provide exceptional durability and strength. A proven material in the ground transportation, architectural, and construction industries, laminated composite panels are available with durable inner core plywood and honeycomb materials to provide you with the best fit for your application. Product thickness varies depending on core material and your business application. Common thicknesses include: 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4″. Common uses include walls for truck bodies, trailers, RVs, boats, and pre-made walls for construction.

How to buy the right laminated composite panels for your business

When you are in the market for a laminated composite panel, there are several important factors to consider:

  • What is your application? Whether heavy duty or light duty, this helps determine the core strength required so we can recommend the best laminated composite product type for you: plywood or honeycomb.
  • What is the thickness/size required? The thickness of the panel is determined by the strength needed for your application. A laminated composite panel expert for your industry can help you determine what thickness is the best fit for your needs. Common widths include: 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4″.
  • Do you require customization? One size does not fit all! Each project is unique to your industry and your business application. CNC routers allow laminated composite panel suppliers to customize your order by measuring, drilling, and cutting to your exact specifications.
  • What quantity do you estimate needing? Knowing the quantity and any additional details helps get a more accurate quote on the project.
  • What should you consider when selecting a vendor? It is important to partner with a laminated composite panel vendor that understands your industry, manufactures a quality product, and takes pride in delivering customer-focused solutions and on-time delivery that yield repeat customers.
