Composite Sandwich Panels in RVs

Filed under: Composites, General, news — Tags: , , — admin @ 12:08 pm

Recreation vehicles, RVs, are a good indicator for the health of the economy. RV sales show strength in consumer spending, consumer confidence, and availability of financing.

Sandwich panel manufacturer AZDEL recently announced that with the recent upswing in RV demand, they have increased their capacity to 20 million pounds (100 million sqft). Source
