In this study, the behavior of sandwich materials with continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite layer composite top and bottom plates under blast load was experimentally investigated. Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are fully recyclable and environmentally friendly composites. Experiments were carried out in the laboratory environment using the shock tube test set-up in AMAMRG Lab. Shock pressure profiles formed after the explosion and on the front surface of the sandwich plate were obtained. The displacement variations during the impact of the shock load were measured from the sandwich plate's back surface. Moreover, permanent displacements of sandwich panels after the explosion were measured. Three different core structures were applied and comparatively examined in the sandwich materials used.
