Cormaster sandwich panels


As the name indicates, sandwich panels consist of several layers of material. Usually, the panels are comprised of two thin outer layers that are firmly bonded to an inner core. On account of this structure, sandwich panels are also known as composite panels.

Different types of sandwich panels

SCHÜTZ manufactures sandwich panels in a wide variety of designs according to individual customer specifications, ranging from flat sandwich panels made in our multi-level presses to autoclave-cured curved panels. Depending on the customer’s specifications, we supply both panel types as semi-finished products or as finished engineered panels cut to size on the basis of the customer’s drawings including all additional and integral parts such as inserts.

Material & Applications

All SCHÜTZ sandwich panels are based on a CORMASTER® honeycomb core – a high-performance honeycomb material developed and manufactured by SCHÜTZ. Prepregs based on glass fibre or carbon fibre with a phenolic or epoxy resin system are used as top layers for the sandwich panels. The panels, which have an extremely low weight combined with outstanding fire properties (FST), meet the highest mechanical requirements. Light – Strong – Robust. These characteristics make our honeycomb sandwich panels the ideal material for a wide range of applications.

  • Aerospace Industry

    Sandwich panels – applications in the aerospace industry

    In the aerospace industry, CORMASTER® sandwich panels by SCHÜTZ are used for engineering and building interiors, primary and secondary structures. CORMASTER® honeycomb panels are also used as floor panels in aircraft cabins.

  • Building Industry and Trade Fair Construction

    Sandwich panels for the building industry and trade fair construction

    Sandwich panels by SCHÜTZ, for example covered with stainless steel or anodised aluminium, are ideal for building facades and lightweight construction solutions for modern commercial buildings. They are also a flexible, efficient solution for shop fittings and trade fair construction.

  • Maritime and Sports

    Sandwich panels for maritime an sports

    Motor sports, racing, sailing, high-performance motor yachts and sailing yachts, caravanning: in all of these applications CORMASTER® sandwich panels are used to make boat decks, bulkheads and hatches, doors, seating and many other elements.

  • Trains and Automotive Engineering

    Sandwich panels for trains and automotive engineering

    In automotive, commercial and train construction, lightweight CORMASTER® sandwich panels are used for interior applications, as structural components and trim panels.

Further applications of our CORMASTER® sandwich panels can be found in the military sector, medical technology and in general mechanical engineering.

The advantages of  CORMASTER® sandwich panels.

Advantages of the lightweight sandwich panels

SCHÜTZ sandwich panels offer superior product features, including:

  • Weight efficiency
  • Mechanical stiffness
  • Mechanical strength
  • Moisture resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wide range of applications

CORMASTER® composite panels can help to decrease weight, thus reducing fuel consumption, enabling higher loads and payloads and generating overall savings in life cycle costs.

Sandwich panels with honeycomb core

Design Principles of Composite Panels.

SCHÜTZ sandwich panels owe their outstanding mechanical properties to their structure. In the panels, the honeycomb structure keeps the cover layers at a set distance from each other, like an I-beam.

The distance between the cover layers, which is formed by the honeycomb. In this case, the honeycombs act as perfect shear webs and the cover layers made of prepreg, e.g. carbon fibre-based, act as compression or tension girder within the sandwich panel.
