Honeycomb Core

The aluminium honeycomb core is composed of layers of aluminium foil configured to make a hexagonal lattice when expanded. Aluminium honeycomb produces one of the highest strength to weight ratios of any structural material.

The honeycomb can be supplied in its expanded or unexpanded form and properties can be controlled by varying the foil thickness and cell size.
