The paper presents the evaluation of flexural rigidity in case of a new sandwich structure with thin nonwoven polyester mat as core. The structure is seen as an open beam with dissimilar skins from which one is EWR-300 glass fabric reinforced polyester. Three-point bend tests have been carried out to determine the most important features of this structure.
