Half the Weight of Wood

50% Lighter than Wood

Azdel OnboardĀ® composites are about half the weight of wood at the same thickness. This increases fuel efficiency while reducing stress on your tow vehicle. A lighter load also frees up stow weight for your personal items.

Let it Rain

No Mold, Mildew, Rotting or Warping

Water will not cause fiber decomposition on our composite panels, so there is no rotting, warping or swelling, and neither mold nor mildew will grow. Wet/dry cycles can affect wood bonds and diminish structural support.

Hot & Cold Cycles

Unaffected by Temperature & Humidity Changes

Temperature and humidity changes are well tolerated by our material. Azdel composite panels are not damaged from freezing and thawing cycles, a common cause and accelerant of delamination.

Sound Absorption

Superior Sound Absorption

Azdel composite is porous so it absorbs sound waves instead of being transferred through vibration as with wood panels. Our sound absorption is over 4.5X that of lauan for both its average and peak. You are in for a quieter ride and rest!

Thermal Transfer

Superior Thermal Barrier

Azdel Onboard composite was third-party lab tested per ASTM C518-2010 standards to offer an R-value of 4.65 at 980gsm. With wood typically offering only 1.0-1.2, our composite is several times better. This will help keep summers cooler and winters warmer.
