Lantor Soric®

Lantor Soric® is a unique flexible foam core for infusion and RTM processing

Lantor Soric®

Invented by Lantor in 2002, Soric® has always been the ideal core and flow medium in one. Soric® enables producers to make better, more consistent quality products, with less material use and less emissions. Soric® helps customers create lighter products by replacing unnecessary materials and eliminate part of the ancillaries because of the built-in flow capability.

This is all the effect of a unique product structure, where microspheres are incorporated in a polyester based fleece with a pressure resistant binder in a typical form of islands and channels. This structure guarantees pressure resistance, flexibility, low weight and resin flow in one.

Soric® is the best core for application in complex and relatively thin geometries.

Lantor Soric® SF

Lantor Soric® SF contains fine hexagon foam cells that don’t absorb any resin. The channels between the cells allow for the resin to flow.

  • The cost effective solution for closed mould processes
  • Is used as core material and infusion medium
  • Is a pressure stable polyester nonwoven and compatible with all regular types of resins, including Polyester, Vinylester, Phenolic and Epoxy
  • Is suitable for closed mould processes, including Infusion, RTM Light, RTM Heavy
  • Regular resin flow between small hexagon foam cells.
  • Applicable in relatively sharp corners.
  • Available in 2 and 3 mm thickness.
