Lightest Possible Construction
Fabricators use this sandwich core when high strength-to-weight ratios are required. This honeycomb is an aerospace-grade aramid fiber constructed from DuPont Nomex® paper that is phenolic coated. Over-expanded cell structures allow it to be more flexible, which also makes it perfect for use in tight radius curves. Nomex® core honeycomb is used in aircraft galleys, flooring, partitions, aircraft leading and trailing edges, missile wings, radomes, antennas, military shelters, fuel tanks, helicopter rotor blades and navy bulkhead joiner panels.
- High fire resistance and thermally insulating
- Bonds well with epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins (and most adhesives), reducing peel
- Due to the nature of this material, the overall length and width of these sheets may grow significantly due to cell expansion.
Honeycomb is available in two densities: 1.8 lb./cubic foot (#1562) and 3.0 lb./cubic foot (#2562); both are 0.210" thick with over-expanded cells, measuring 3⁄16".
