Structural Aluminium Honeycomb Core Materials
Application: High performance aluminium (or aluminum) honeycomb exactly as supplied to the world's top composites engineering, aerospace and motorsport manufacturers.
Used correctly, aluminium honeycomb can be used to reduce the weight and increase the stiffness of composite panels in a wide range of applications:
This very small 3.2mm / 1/8" cell size honeycomb is one of the highest specification honeycombs available. It is used in the most demanding motorsport (F1) and aerospace applications to create incredibly strong sandwich panels.
Cell Size and Specification
Our 3.2mm / 1/8" Aluminium Honeycomb has the smallest cell sizes of the 3 honeycombs that we offer. Smaller cell sizes means a stronger honeycomb but at the same time it is heavier and more expensive than honeycombs with a larger cell size (and therefore lower density).
*Due to the very small cell size of the 3.2mm honeycomb perforation is not practical. In most likely applications for this very high spec honeycomb it is also not necessary.
Corrosion treatment is also not necessary for the likely applications of this high spec honeycomb.
Expanded Sheet Sizes
We supply our Aluminium Honeycomb in unexpanded (block) form. This makes them much smaller (and more cost effective) to ship but most importantly ensures that they are delivered undamaged, ready to be easily expanded into a faultless sheet of honeycomb.
