Thermoplastic composite honeycomb sandwich material combinations

[Published on: 29-01-15]

Triggered by the market trends, EconCore has been recently focusing on sandwich panels based 100% on thermoplastic composite materials.
Sandwich panels with glass fibre reinforced thermoplastics skins offer a unique set of properties and are the latest development of EconCore. These sandwich panels with skins made of reinforced thermoplastics (usually PP or, for higher heat resistance demanding applications - PA) offer not only excellent rigidity at minimal weight but also toughness which is due to the thermoplastic composite material system. EconCore, working with partners, has proven good thermoformability of this sandwich solution and the readiness of adapting the conversion technology for mass scale automotive and transportation applications. EconCore is capable of production of such composite panels in smaller series and is evaluating the perspectives of licensing of the integrated ThermHex technology for larger volume production of such thermoplastic composite honeycomb sandwich material combinations.
