Typical Applications: 

  • Trunk trim (polypropylene honeycomb cover boards)
  • Load floor / Trunk trim (structural composite parts)
  • Headliner
  • Door panel / Door insert 
  • Vibration dampening 
  • Seat-back
  • Lightweight elements for electric vehicles design
  • Bulkhead
  • Parcel shelf

Key advantages:

  • Weight reduction per the honeycomb sandwich panel effect
  • Cost-reduction per the efficient, in-line integrated production process
  • Enhanced rigidity
  • Insensitive to moisture and humidity effects (plywood replacement)
  • Excellent thermo-formability
  • Improved thermal insulation and acoustic performance
  • Reduction of COemissions and minimal environmental impact

Most popular honeycomb core materials in these applications:

•    Polypropylene, Polyamide (PA6, PA66, …), ABS, PET, Polycarbonate,  …

Most popular sandwich skin materials in these applications:

•    Polypropylene, WPC, Thermoplastic composites, Thermoset composites, metal, …
