INFORMATION ABOUT

WORKLITE
(Formerly Foamkore)

Worklite reduces material weight up to 80%* by capturing a lightweight core between two thin high-density faces, resulting in a strong lightweight panel with structural integrity. Core material is a dense closed-cell Styrofoam that provides moisture resistance, thermal performance and compressive strength. Some panels can weigh as little as 12 oz/sf while still providing a 1/8″ plywood faced panel to achieve a 3/4″ overall thickness. Panels can be covered with high-pressure laminates, veneers, metals and many other semirigid materials as well as stained or painted.

*Compared to conventional panels made of plywood, particleboard and MDF

PRODUCT TESTIMONIAL

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING?

“The Kerfkore Worklite product was the perfect material for the art piece I wanted to create. I needed something that had a physically and visually substantial structure, while being lightweight at the same time and this material had it all. The people at Kerfkore were extremely helpful and excited to help me achieve my vision, working with me to choose the product that would best suit my needs and to have the sheets cut to my particular specifications. Not only was the material’s structure perfect, it did not require heavy duty jointing or extra reinforcements; I found that the joints in my sculptures adhered very well with a strong wood glue alone! Once my sculptures were complete, I was able to move them, place them and interact with them in the various environments I chose without any problem – instead of worrying about my sculptures breaking, I needed only to worry whether they would fit in my vehicle. I am really happy to have found and worked with this company … they were a huge part of my success in this project.”
