How would you describe the Vixen Composites sandwich panel?
Our panels are made up of fiberglass skins on the top and bottom, with a core material in the middle.  They are seamless and have a high strength-to-weight ratio.

What makes the Vixen Composites’ panel superior to other composite panels?
Our Panelogic™ process is unique, where the fiberglass skins are chemically and thermally bonded to the core material.  We use high temperatures to fully cure and to bond all materials together.  The fiberglass is in tension during processing, to yield a high glass-to-resin ratio, resulting in a stronger panel.

What are the advantages of using synthetic core and fiberglass over wood?
Our composite panels will not rot, mildew, swell and are water resistant.  They are bugproof, so they are impervious to ants, termites, moths, bugs, and beetles.
