Sandwich Panels or Composite Panels are structures made up of three layers: a low-density core and a thin metal or plastic skin-layer bonded to each side. Over the years, they have been used extensively in external wall and roof construction of a wide variety of buildings, including cold storage, warehousing, hotels, exhibition halls, clean room environments and the food industry.
