Composite Plastics

 

BENCORE® composite panels are available in three variants, with a macro-cellular, honeycomb core or cylindrical cells. The core structure of the panels is laminated with external layers of acrylic, PETG or polycarbonate dependent upon colour and characteristics.
Lightweight with high rigidity and stiffness, the BENCORE® product range offers a unique aesthetic for a wide variety of applications.

Bencore panels are not held as a stock item and are subject to minimum order requirements.

Bencore® Starlight

Starlight is a stiff, lightweight, composite panel with a translucent, honeycomb core in SAN that is laminated with two layers of transparent, coloured or silk finished acrylic. Starlight is a versatile material that is easily worked and suitable for a number of interesting aesthetic applications. Where the  design incorporates an exposed edge, the Starlight panel can be closed with the same acrylic as used on the surface.

Bencore® Starlight Extra
Starlight Extra has all the benefits of the Starlight panel but with a stronger and more rigid core manufactured in polycarbonate. It is particularly suited to structural applications, where the panel has   to support heavier loads over greater spans.

Bencore® Starlight Plus
Starlight Plus is a structural panel with a core of polycarbonate laminated with two layers of PETG. Whilst not having the range of colours available with an acrylic surface, the PETG provides the added benefit of a higher fire resistance rating. These properties make Starlight Plus ideal for use in areas where building regulations require it, such as public buildings and areas with high footfall.

Bencore® Starlight Floor
Starlight Floor has all the benefits of Starlight Plus derived from a polycarbonate core while also utilising a polycarbonate, anti slip surface. Suitable for structural applications with high loads and specifically for raised floor areas.

Bencore® Lightben
Lightben is a lighter composite panel with a polycarbonate honeycomb core constructed of tubes or cylinders and laminated with two layers of transparent, coloured or silk finished acrylic.

The construction of the Lightben core structure creates a partial transparency which varies according to the visual angle and offers a different aesthetic to the Starlight panels when back-lit.

Lightben Kaos
A variation of the Lightben panel, the polycarbonate honeycomb core has cylindrical cells of variable diameter laminated with two layers of transparent, coloured or silk finished acrylic. The irregular pattern creates another variation of the lighting effect.

Lightben Plus
Lightben Plus has a polycarbonate core laminated with two layers of PETG. Whilst not having the  range of colours available with an acrylic surface, the PETG provides the added benefit of a higher fire resistance rating.

These properties make Lightben Plus ideal for use in areas where building regulations require it, such as public buildings and areas with high footfall. Lightben Plus CC Lightben Plus CC has all the  benefits of Lightben Plus, but with a ‘Colour Core’ offers a translucency which varies according to the visual angle.

Bencore® Hexaben
Hexaben is a stiff, lightweight, composite panel with a honeycomb core in aluminium, laminated with two layers of acrylic. Hexaben is a versatile material that is easily worked and suitable for a  number of interesting aesthetic applications.
Where the design incorporates an exposed edge, the Hexaben panel can be closed with the same acrylic as used on the surface.
