When you think Coosa Composites and our products, the term “no-rot” probably comes to mind. Or so it should. That’s part of the reason why our panels are so highly valued by our customers: Their relative imperviousness to common conditions that can warp, rot, or otherwise deteriorate traditional materials like plywood. Coosa Composites’ Nautical panels provide the same winning characteristics—with added benefit in certain applications. 

A Stand-Out Series: Coosa Composites Nautical Panels

Our proven, no-rot Nautical panels incorporate high-density, closed-cell, polyurethane foam with fiberglass reinforcement—but offer a cost-effective, lighter weight alternative to our Bluewater series. Our Nautical series includes three models—Nautical 15, 20, and 24—which vary in density, stiffness, and strength for diverse application use. 

As expected, our Nautical series provides mold and fungus-free use that’s significantly less absorbent than traditional plywood. But its qualities as a first-rate product don’t stop there: Our Nautical panels’ use extends to an array of varied, and even specialized, applications. 

Nautical Panels Are Useful in Unique Applications

Coosa Composites’ Nautical panels are a versatile product that industrial partners have used to their advantage. For example, some of our construction and building materials partners have adapted them to projects that make use of the panels’ arsenal of valuable properties: their inherent strength, durability, and non-absorbent nature. 

These partners have applied our panels in places they’re well-suited for yet not commonly considered including fast food restaurants, building exteriors of convenience stores, and garage doors. They’ve taken our panels, applied a specialty coating or finish to meet their needs, and capitalized on their lightweight advantage on various building exterior projects. Coosa’s Nautical panels are ideal for these situations due to their high tolerance of the elements, robust strength, and enduring sturdiness. 

The way they are fabricated, our Nautical panels provide compatible use to an array of areas and applications. These panels feature lightweight characteristics, which favor lower-intensity structural purposes. Their lighter weight is a result of reduced densities, along with the absence of woven roving fiberglass. However, strength is still well-represented with multiple layers of continuous strand fiberglass throughout. And while these panels don’t enjoy the signature stiffness of our Bluewater series, they still offer the qualities necessary for applications galore. For instance, they are highly effective in marine-based applications such as bulkhead or deckhead, as well as other low-span, low-stiffness circumstances. 

What Makes Coosa Composites Your Composite Panel Go-To

Coosa Composites Nautical panels not only provide a robust solution to many needs, they are competitively priced to boot. Based on their raw material makeup, they offer a cost-effective solution for partners looking to maximize quality per cost. For instances where stiffness over larger spans isn’t a top priority, our Nautical panels provide the sought-after strength and time-tested no-rot characteristics our customers care about. This series stands as a testament to our enduring legacy as a go-to composite manufacturer. 

Speaking of legacy, Coosa Composites is an industry-leading composite panel producer.
