Honeycomb Core

Honeycomb Core Performance for Your Application

PP Honeycomb
cores-thermoplasticA 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)
cores-aramid-fiberCommercial 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)
cores-kevlarPara-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) 
cores-aluminumCommercial 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.
