The objective of this program is to select a sandwich panel-decorative film system that possesses both improved FS&T characteristics and acceptable cost, processing requirements, decorative capability, abrasion resistance, stain resistance, scuff resistance, and washability. The selected system is to be based on current state-of-the-art materials. Three resin systems (viz., bismaleimide, polyimide, and modified phenolic) and four decorative films were evaluated. One resin system (modified phenolic) and one decorative film (Tedlar-polycarbonate) were selected after a screening phase for incorporation into a final evaluation phase. The final phase covers development of an overall ranking system for each of the sandwich panels. Some of the characteristics relevant to this ranking are smoke release, heat release, cost, mechanical strength, and toxic gas production.
