Sing Core is the revolutionary concrete substrate that supersedes all other concrete reinforcement while being lightweight, stronger than steel and eco-friendly. Working hand-in-hand with architects, designers, contractors and end-users, Sing Core concrete substrate helps to solve the structural challenges often associated with concrete-work, while maintaining the highest levels of structural integrity and minimizing construction and maintenance costs.

Insulation: Sing Core has built-in insulation value with an R3 to R6.5 rating per inch, depending on client’s needs/specifications.

Sound deadening: Sing Core’s filler material has natural sound-deadening properties. Other sound-deadening options are available at customer request.

Light weight: When compared to other materials Sing Core weighs much less, as much as 50% less, or more, as little as 4 lbs. per sq. ft. yet eco-friendly. This advanced technology used in the aviation industry is now available for use in your home.

Strength: Sing Core based on 2″ x 2″ grids and 3/4″ thick = 660 PSI. For instance, aluminum 3/8″ grids = 30+ PSI (smaller grids should be more strength). Sing Core’s superior strength comes from its advanced torsion box design.

Solid: Sing Core is solid like a rock. While the vertical wood grain torsion box core may be compared to other hollow honeycomb cores, the Sing Core voids are not hollow as they are bonded wall-to-wall and filled with recycled foam for a strong, solid substrate.

Eco-friendly: Sing Core is manufactured using natural wood fibers, no formaldehyde, or toxic chemicals, is created using less energy than any other core material with little or no waste.

Renewable: The structure of Sing Core is 100% renewable (nature-grown) clean fiber and/or recycled material.

Oversize: Sing Core excels in area of large oversize products due to its unique properties and can be up to 50 foot length.

Dimensionally stable: Sing Core is the most dimensionally stable building material allowing us to create large, oversize products (i.e., doors, up to 50 ft.) that are true flat exceeding AWI standards and can be guaranteed to be true flat. Large oversize panels can be truly dimensionally stable without any movement due to temperature and moisture change.

Affordable: Even though Sing Core technology is used in high-end applications, we make it affordable for broad use in a large number of applications. Sing Core performance is comparable to any high-end core but could be as little cost as low-end wood product core.

Waterproof upgrade: Sing Core is available in waterproof upgrade, to accommodate your specific water resistant requirements.

Fire retardant upgrade: When used in fire retardant applications, the Sing Core fire retardant door is the lightweight, super-strong, eco-friendly alternative.

Bullet-proof upgrade: In high-security end products, most cores used in bullet-proof applications are heavy in weight, causing strain on the infrastructure, unlike Sing Core.

Thickness available: Sing Core is readily available in many thicknesses, up to 6 inches in standard thickness, with custom thicknesses available.

Skin options: Available in many different exteriors including (but not limited to) aluminum, cement board, cold roll steel, concrete, ceramic tile, fiber glass, galvanize metal, glass, MDF, metal, plastic, plywood, solid wood, stainless steel, etc…

Easy to machine: Sing Core is easy to work with in the shop or on-site for sawing, sanding, adding solid wood implants, gluing, cutting and fastening.

Fast turnaround: In you’re in a rush, only Sing Core can be custom made within 24 hours and is proudly manufactured for you in the USA.

Fire Resistant Sing Panels

Fire-resistant Sing panels are fiberglass-reinforced magnesium oxide cement board and an excellent option. The resulting fire-resistant panels are not just funtional with all the benefits of Sing technology, but they are aesthetically pleasing, quite attractive in appearance. Sing Cement Board is fire-resistant and non-combustible, has a 0 flame/ 0 smoke contribution in a structural sheathing product.  (ASTM E 136-09 / ASTM E 84)

frp-fiberglass-panels

Fire-resistant Sing panels are a Class A lightweight product that meets ASTM E 84 certifications. The face material consists of an 1/8″ non flame spreading material. This construction combines a lightweight durable non combustible face with Sing Core to achieve a class A lightweight material. This product contains no added formaldehyde.

Fire-resistant Sing panels result in being 60%-or-more lightweight when compared to FR Particleboard and MDF.

Sing Cement / Concrete Substrate

Sing Cement Substrate is the perfect foundation for regrigerated concrete floors.

Sing Cement Board Wall

Sing Core Concrete home building system. It is the strongest lightweight insulated low cost home in the world—-We prove our claim by this picture. $1000.00 dollar reward if you can prove otherwise.

Pictured below is a one ton truck on a piece of 1/4″ inch thick Hardy Plank wrapped around our Honeycomb core. it does not crack under the pressure of a 1 ton truck. This is the future economical, concrete home structure. The picture is proof. Can you drive a 1 ton truck over a conventional frame home wall without it cracking??
