         Density-Cell Size-Foil Thickness-Perforated/Non-Perforated-Alloy

Honeycomb Aramid Fiber

Aramid Honeycomb is a lightweight, high strength, non-metallic honeycomb manufactured with aramid fiber paper (DUPONT Nomex® or equivalent).  The aramid paper is treated with a heat resistant phenolic resin.  This core material exhibits excellent resiliency, small cell size, low density and outstanding flame properties.

                 Features:

·      High Strength to Weight Ratio

·      Corrosion Resistance

·      Good Thermal Insulation

·      Fire Resistant (Self Extinguishing)

·      Easily Formed to Shape

·      Excellent Dielectric Properties

·      Very Bondable

                  Availability:

Aramid Fiber Honeycomb is available in sheets, blocks or in cut to size pieces.  The material is available in a semi-cured state to facilitate forming of the core.   Over expanded cell configurations are also available.
