Bluewater Panels are a high density, closed-cell polyurethane foam reinforced with woven roving and continuous strand fiberglass. The woven roving fiberglass in addition to continuous strand fiberglass in Bluewater Panels adds additional flexural strength (stiffness) for demanding applications where structural integrity and/or greater span lengths are appropriate.
Bluewater panels are approximately 40-60% lighter than plywood, depending upon density ordered. Bluewater panels offer a very low water absorption, 1.5% or less; therefore, there is no significant weight gain when exposed to water. Bluewater panels are made of high-density foam and fiberglass and will not rot. The panels are more mold and mildew resistant than plywood, along with being resistant to insect infestations. Bluewater Panels can be utilized for multiple applications:
Marine - transoms, stringers, hatch lids and decking
Industrial - wall panels, amusement park structures, museum exhibits and instrument/transport cases
Transportation - floors for emergency vehicles, buses
