DuPont™ Nomex Over-Expanded Honeycomb Core Material
*Note: Oversized Shipping Charges May Apply.
Due to the large size of these panels shipping weight is based on dimensional weight, not actual weight which results in a shipping weight that is greater than the actual weight of the product.
This material is available in 0.125", 0.1875", 0.25", 0.375" and 0.5"
■ High mechanical strength at low densities.
■ Outstanding resistance to corrosive attack by chemicals.
■ Excellent resistance to impact damage and moisture.
■ Fire retardant and self extinguishing.
■ Low smoke and toxic gas emission.
■ Highly resistant to fungal growth.
■ Good dielectric properties, transparent to radio and radar waves.
■ Easily cut and machined to shape and can be heat formed.
■ Low thermal conductivity.
■ Compatible with most lightweight reinforced composite materials, providing a good bonding surface for Redux® adhesives and self adhesive prepreg systems.
■ Easy single curvature forming of over-expanded honeycomb.
DuPont™ Nomex honeycomb composites helps provide lightweight strength, stiffness, toughness, corrosion resistance and other attributes, which bring high value-in-use to industries such as mass transportation, construction, and marine shipping.
Over-Expanded Aramid Honeycomb is a lightweight, high strength, nonmetallic honeycomb core material manufactured from aramid fiber paper with the rectangular cell shape. The over-expanded cell shape allows the core to flex in one direction easily, making it suitable for forming simple curves. After the honeycomb is formed, it is coated with a heat resistant phenolic resin to increase its strength and thermal properties.
Aramid Honeycomb exhibits a high strength-to-weight ratio, exceptional stiffness, and is very bondable. It is becoming increasingly used in high-performance, non-aerospace components due to its high mechanical properties, low density and good long-term stability. Aramid Honeycomb is ideal for any structure which requires corrosion resistance and thermal insulation.
