Polypropylene honeycomb has four designs
No lamination (bare),
Laminated with polyester wool
Laminated with polypropylene film and polyester fiber fleece
Suitable for vacuum infusion
The PP honeycomb cells are attached with film or fleece, and are thermally connected with the polypropylene honeycomb as a laminate layer. Polyester wool is used as a binder for further processing. When using liquid resin, polypropylene film ensures that the honeycomb material is resin-free and does not fill the hollow space in the honeycomb.
Due to its thermoplastic properties, plastic honeycombs can be thermoformed and cut into desired shapes using conventional tools. Polypropylene honeycomb is very suitable for composite materials. With the right process and resources, almost all materials can be attached to Corex polypropylene honeycomb as a cover layer. Fiber composite materials (glass fiber reinforced plastics, glass fiber mat reinforced thermoplastics), metal plates, wood panels, high-pressure laminate coverings or minerals are often used.
Advantages of polypropylene honeycomb:
Very light and light weight: 60 bis 120 kg / m 3
Extremely strong: high tensile strength, bending resistance and pressure resistance
Extremely versatile: almost unlimited application possibilities
Corrosion and moisture resistance
Reduce noise and vibration
Precise cutting brings the highest dimensional stability
Can be thermoformed
Can be recycled
Polypropylene honeycomb is very suitable for commercial vehicle manufacturing, ship building, rail vehicle construction, automotive industry, transportation/logistics, construction and wind power systems. It ensures a reduction in quality, while providing particularly high pressure, impact and bending stability, low water absorption and resistance to corrosion. According to our extensive environmental qualifications, polypropylene is an environmentally friendly plastic because it is 100% recyclable.
