Basically, patented Sing Core can host any flat surface material. To date, these are the most popular:
Non-warping Sing Wood Planks are growing in popularity among the architectural community used for door, floors, ceilings, siding and scaffolding.
One of our most popular Sing Core surface material is aluminum due to its unique properties, especially when maintaining true flatness over a long spans.
Standard aluminum facing material sizes are:

Expanding on the widespread potentials of Sing Core, metal is used in order to imbue it with essential attributes for specific design integration, solving the problems of lightweight without compromising strength (as Sing Core bonded with metal is actual stronger than solid metal).
Standard metal panels are lighter and stronger than steel and available in the following metals:
- Colled-rolled steel
- Galvonized steel
- Hot rolled steel
- Stainless steel
- Stainless diamondplate
That is just a sample of the many varieties of metal that can be used to house Sing Core. We can use nearly any metal material to accommodate your needs while resulting in a superior end product.

2-5-3. FRP Fiberglass
Fiberglass, FRP and plastic skins are popular exterior surfaces for Sing Core. A variety of options exist, for more information, see Fiberglass Index
2-5-4. HPL High Pressure Laminate
High Pressure Laminate (HPL) is resistant to abrasion, high temperatures, shock, flame and can be used in both interior and exterior applications.
Available in standard thicknesses: .020, .040
2-5-5. Cement Board
Cement board is a versatile Sing Core exterior due to its unique properties of water resistance, will not mold, mildew or physically break down in the continued presence of moisture or leaks.
Available in standard thickness: 1/8”, 1/4″
Other surface materials include:
– Thermally Fused Laminate (TFL)
– Decorative Paper/Foils
– 3D Laminates
– Continuously Pressed Laminate (CPL)
– Engineered/Value Added Veneers
– Decorative Metals
– Polypropylene Film
– Solid Surface
… And nearly any other building material known to man…
Sing Core technology is manifested in so many ways we’ve tried to narrow down the basics to make the possibilities easy to comprehend.
What are Sing Composites?
Sing Composites are the combining of different abundant raw materials for the greater good. Sing Composites are:
- Production costs
- Labor costs
- Shipping costs
To understand Sing Core technology, you must understand that in all Sing Core products the Sing Core is the actual core of the product that produces the vast number of characteristics that make up the Sing Core line.
Sing Core with two exterior skins is a Sing Sandwich Panel, adding solid edges makes a Sing Panel. Basically, all the products listed below are Sing Panels, separated into shape, size and dimensional categories and primarily feature wood exteriors, but could be available in nearly any exterior material. We do all this, and make it affordable to have the greatest impact on the world.
All Sing Core products share the same exceptional characteristics.

There are three basic formats for demonstrating the attributes of the Sing Core material, they are:
1. Sing Plywood
Sing Plywood enables you to use a lightweight, strong, wooden torsion-box panel empowering you to create anything from basic furniture, large sliding doors or to create affordable housing with unparalleled longevity.
- available in large almost seamless oversized panels
- as large as 12 ft wide x 48 ft in length
- as thin as 1/2 inch
- Can be as much as 6 inches thick
Oversize Sing Plywood will have the tightest seam that will not shift due to patented technology, making it guaranteed to maintain structural integrity and seal, unlike solid wood.
With an appearance identical to traditional plywood, the physical characteristics are nothing short of shocking in comparison, as Patented Sing Plywood
2. Sing Planks
Sing Core Wood Planks are elongated and rectangular solid wood on six sides, a lightweight super-strong eco-friendly alternative to solid wood material used in carpentry and the construction of ships, houses, bridges and other structures.
In stock standard sizes of Sing Planks:
Sing wood planks are available in any width from eight to twelve inches, any thickness from 1/8 inch to six inches and any length up to 50 feet long.
A variety of options are available for your Sing Wood Planks
3. Sing Post and Beam
Sing Posts and Beams are more dimensionally stable and structurally sound than any other building material; maintaining unparalleled strength over long spans, while remaining lightweight. Sing Posts and beams are super strong and resistant to rot, weather and temperature variations, warp and twist.
In stock standard sizes of Sing Posts and Beams:
- 4 x 6
- 5 x 8
- 6 x 8
- 8 x 8
- 8 x 10
- 8 x 12
Sing Posts and Beams are available in any width from four to twelve inches, any thickness from 4 inches to forty-eight inches and any length up to 50 feet long.
Sing Laminate Beams replace oversize traditional laminate beams sporting superior strength and lightweight, while retaining all the natural wood beauty. For more information, see Sing Post and Beam

The surface material that is featured on Sing Core material greatly enhances the characteristics of the end product and endows it with unique properties for a variety of products and applications. Examples include:
Plywood / Wood Veneer
When Sing Core is sandwiched between two exterior skins of plywood, the result is a building material that is unmatched in the world of standard building materials due to the increased strength and lightweight properties of the end product, as well as resistance to warp and twist.
Standard plywood exterior surfaces are available in
You may specify the individual characteristics of the plywood used to your specifications. For more information, see: Sing Plywood
Woodstaves (a narrow length of wood “stave” with a slightly beveled edge) can be utilized to form the exterior of Sing Core. These can be used to replace other types of solid wood building materials.
Standard wood stave exterior measures:
Other thicknesses of wood stave may be available upon request, in nearly any wood species.
For more information on Sing Core’s wood staves, see Wood Staves
Sandwiching Sing Core between two wood planks results in an incredibly strong structural-strength building material, that will remain straight and true, lasting the test of time.
