Type
   Skin Type:      The carrier or backing is a relatively thin, flexible material to which an adhesive is applied.
   Your choices are...         
   Concrete / Fiber Cement       Concrete consists of a Portland cement material filled with sand and aggregate. Fibers are often added to concrete to improve crack resistance and mechanical properties. Fiber cement-based products or boards consist of a Portland cement material reinforced with a fibrous additive that inhibits cracking or crack propagation. 
   Metal Sheet / Foil       Metal foil tapes have aluminum, aluminum-reinforced, and lead backings 
   Plastic / FRP       Plastic products incorporate one or more plastic layers, or consist of plastic film or sheets that can be clear or colored, printed or plain, single-layered or multilayered, and combined with materials such as aluminum and paper. There are two general categories of plastics: thermoplastics and thermosets. 
   Plasterboard / Drywall       Plasterboard or drywall is a sheet material made of gypsum that is sandwiched between paper facings or skins. 
   Plywood       Plywood is a wood product manufactured by laminating together thin wood layers (plies or veneers) with adhesive under high pressures to form a sheet product. The outside layer often consists of a higher quality veneer with a smooth, sanded surface. 
   Orientated Strand Board (OSB)       Orientated strand board (OSB) is a wood product manufactured by laminating together wood chips or strands with adhesive under high pressures to form a sheet product. Typically, OSB has superior mechanical properties compared to conventional plywood. 
   Solid Wood / Wood Veneer       Wood products can include solid wood boards, thin wood veneers, orientated strand board (OSB), plywood, and particle board. Wood is a natural composite extracted from the stems, branches, and roots of trees. It is a hard, fibrous substance consisting of xylem and cellulose fibers in an amorphous lignin polymer matrix.  Lignin is a biogenetic, crosslinked polymer that bonds adjacent cell walls together into a straw or wood tissue composite. Cellulose is a polysaccharide (C6H10O5)x of glucose units that constitutes the chief part of the cell walls of plants. It occurs naturally in fibrous products such as cotton and kapok, and is the raw material in many manufactured goods (e.g., paper, rayon, and cellophane). 
   Specialty / Other       Other, unlisted backing materials. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Core Type:      Core material consists of solid wood or wood product core (OSB, particle board), honeycomb, foam, corrugated sheet, internal trusses, or lattice block structures. Lattice or trusses can be formed by bonding and expanding wire screen or perforated metal sheet.
   Your choices are...         
   Foam - Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)       Expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam is expanded with a blowing agent during processing. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic resin made by the free radical polymerization of styrene or vinyl benzene. STYROFOAM®, a registered trademark of DuPont, is a common brand of EPS. 
   Foam - Polyurethane       Polyurethane foams typically provide better R-values compared to XPS and EPS foams. Polyurethane or PUR resins provide excellent flexibility, impact resistance, and durability. Polyurethanes are formed through the reaction of an isocyanate component with polyols or other active hydroxyl group compounds. Polyurethanes require a catalyst, heat, or air evaporation to initiate and complete curing.  
   Foam - Extruded Polystyrene (XPS)       Extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam can provide better R-values compared to expanded polystyrene. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic resin made by the free radical polymerization of styrene or vinyl benzene.  
   Specialty / Other       Other proprietary or unlisted panel, core, or laminate structures. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Configuration
   Thickness       Thickness is the distance from one surface to the other. It is usually expressed in mils or thousandths of an inch, and is measured under slight pressure with a special gauge. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Width       Enter the desired product width. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Length       Enter the desired product length. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Performance
   Shear Strength       Shear strength is the force required to break a material where two opposing and offset forces are applied. Shear strength is often used to evaluate the bonds in laminates and sandwich panels. Shear strength of a homogeneous material is typically two thirds of the tensile strength of a material. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   R-value       R-value is used in the building and construction field to provide a measure of the thermal resistance of a product. R-value is not an intrinsic material property per se because R-value varies with material thickness. Thermal resistivity would be the material property equivalent. R-value is the inverse of thermal conductance or U-value. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
