Most of the core in use at HONYLITE is made from honeycomb. We specify aluminum for the majority of our projects, and we process Nomex, plastic honeycomb and other core materials when required. We have expertise in customized Aluminium Honeycomb Cores.
Choosing the correct honeycomb core for your application can be a very difficult problem. Not only are there mechanical property strengths and modulus requirements, but the environmental issue must also be considered: temperature exposure, moisture, water migration, relative humidity, fluids soak resistance, damage tolerance, impact resistance, etc.
In general, aluminum honeycomb cores offer the best mechanical properties for the lowest weight and cost, while Nomex and thermoplastic honeycomb cores offer the most toughness and damage tolerance.
