Sandwich Panels, Aluminum and Thermoplastics honeycombs and Foams

Aluminium honeycomb

Aluminium honeycomb is used for several of applications (i.e. for tool machines, for serigraphy..etc.) and in different sectors such as: public transport industry,nautical sector, building industry, etc...

 

As core material, aluminium honeycomb is used in sandwich panels and it is utilised in: floors, roofs, doors, partitions, facades, working surfaces for automatic machines and for all products which require an optimal stiffness-to-weight-ratio.

 

Aluminium honeycomb as panels’ core has several advantages:

  • lightweight
  • stiffness
  • fire resistance
  • compression, shear and corrosion resistance
  • flatness

 

Aluminium honeycomb can be used as deflector for laminar flow-ventilation, and as crash-absorber for kinetic energy.
Thickness of non-expanded Blocks: 1000mm standard, the diameter of the cells from 3 to 25 mm. The density of the honeycomb depends on the thickness of the foil and the diameter of the cells.
Thickness of expanded section from 3mm to 60 / 200mm approx. (depending on the cell diameter).
Honeycomb density (from 20 to 163 kg/m3) depends on foil’s thickness and on cell size.
