DuPont Nomex honeycomb composites provide an excellent strength to weight reaction for a wide variety of products. This provides vital cost-effective benefits like energy savings and payload increases in many applications. It is also used in the construction of boats to help aid in buoyancy that enhances speed.
Nomex Honeycomb is a lightweight, high strength, nonmetallic honeycomb core material manufactured from aramid fiber paper with the typical hexangular cell shape. After the honeycomb is formed, it is coated with a heat resistant phenolic resin to increase its strength and thermal properties. It exhibits a high strength-to-weight ratio, exceptional stiffness, and is very bondable.
