WHAT IS HONEYCOMB CORE?

    Honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal cells that honeybees make out of wax. The Honeycomb shape is present everywhere in nature: in plants, animal and human cells. No other shape provides such an optimal cover and strength. It is one of the most stable structures.

    Honeycomb structures are natural or man-made structures that have the geometry of a honeycomb to allow the minimization of the material used to reach minimal weight and maximum strength. A honeycomb structure provides a material with least density and relative high compression properties and shear properties. Man-made honeycomb structural materials are commonly made by layering a honeycomb material between two thin layers that provide strength in tension. Paper which is cut and structured using glue to form honeycomb like hexagonal cells is Honeycomb Paper.

INTERNATIONAL VALUE


    In the Second World War, paper honeycomb was introduced for Dakota airplanes fuel tanks. Due to the scarcity of solid filling materials like wood, honeycomb appeared to be a better and cheaper alternative. Now producers all over the world are using honeycomb extensively in various industries. In Switzerland and Germany, paper honeycomb has become an important material in home construction. Temporary housing units made from paper honeycomb have gained huge popularity over the years.
