Honeycomb Core Performance for Your Application
A light, cost-effective polypropylene honeycomb core preferred throughout the world in marine applications. Features a unique cell structure with three orientations vs. the two orientations common with other honeycomb. The result is a more uniform cell structure, without seams for greater uniformity and near isotropic performance. Available for open and closed molding processes.
Nomex® Honeycomb (PN1)
Commercial grade aramid fiber honeycomb core. Nomex® Honeycomb is used extensively in the high performance marine industry for sandwich construction in hulls and decks of some of the finest racing vessels around the world.
Kevlar® Honeycomb (PK2)
Para-aramid fiber honeycomb core. This next generation of honeycomb exhibits improved performance characteristics over Nomex® in strength-to-weight ratio, stiffness and fatigue.
Aluminum Honeycomb (PCGA and PAMG)
Commercial and Mil-Spec Aluminum Honeycomb Core for prepregs applications. Both have the Plascore proprietary conversion coating that exhibits excellent corrosion resistance. The modulus of aluminum provides very high stiffness-to-weight ratios for the most demanding applications.
