When applications require a light weight, high strength composite panel, honeycomb panels are often the best solution.
Honeycomb structures are natural or man-made structures that have the geometry of a honeycomb to allow the minimization of the amount of used material to reach minimal weight and minimal material cost.
When applications require a lightweight, high strength composite panel, honeycomb panels are often the best solution. The cell size, depth of the material, and thickness of the cell wall are all variable that can be specified to create a honeycomb panel with the best properties for your application.
As a general rule, these panels have the following attributes:
Extremely Low Weight
High Resistance to Moisture
High Resistance to Corrosion
Excellent Thermal Conductivity
High Resistance to Fungi
