Increased stiffness and decreased weight for sandwich panels◾ Corrosion resistance◾ Great thermal properties
Core materials are generally used for sandwich structured composites which are a special class of composite materials that is fabricated by attaching two thin but stiff skins to a lightweight thick core. The core material is normally low strength material, but its higher thickness provides the sandwich composite with high bending stiffness with overall low density.
Nomex® is an aerospace-grade aramid fiber honeycomb exhibits outstanding flammability properties. It is manufactured from DuPont Nomex paper (or equivalent) and coated with a heat resistant phenolic resin.
Nomex honeycomb uses include 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.
PCGA-XR2 3003 commercial grade aluminum honeycomb is a lightweight core material offering excellent strength and good corrosion resistance for industrial applications at low cost. PCGA-XR2 3003 honeycomb (currently the only aluminum honeycomb Rock West offers) is made from 3003 aluminum alloy foil.
Aluminum honeycomb uses include air/light directionalization, energy absorption, tooling, ceiling, and floor panels, counter tops and other applications for which elevated physical and mechanical properties are not required.
ROHACELL® is a closed-cell rigid foam based on polymethacrylimide (PMI) chemistry, which does not contain any CFC's. We offer ROHACELL foam in numerous densities and size options.
It is commonly used in aerospace, transportation and marine applications.
