EconCore to present innovations in continuous honeycomb sandwich technology at JEC World 2018

[Published on: 08-02-18]

EconCore’s continuous process for producing high performance lightweight thermoplastic honeycomb cores for composites is set to be a crowd-puller at JEC World 2018 in Paris on March 6 to 8. Its ThermHex process meets the growing need for replacing complex, heavy and expensive parts in highly demanding applications across industries. On Stand R73 in Hall 6, EconCore will present results of new development and tests on honeycombs made in modified polycarbonates, polyamide 66 and polyphenylene sulfide. The work is being carried out in its newly refurbished R&D facilities in Leuven, Belgium.

EconCore is now entering the final phase of validating these engineering thermoplastics. This year, it is targeting new application developments in markets of automotive, aerospace, transportation, packaging and building & construction. “During 2018, EconCore will be moving forward with lots of enthusiasm and energy,” says Tomasz Czarnecki, COO of EconCore. “We intend to build on what was a very successful 2017.“

“Last year, EconCore signed license agreements with several market leaders and concluded some very exciting product developments with key partners”, Czarnecki says. These include Armageddon Energy’s lightweight photovoltaic panel with a PA honeycomb core (which picked up a JEC Innovation Award in June), as well as an aircraft interior module with excellent FST (fire, smoke, toxicity) properties, which EconCore developed with Diehl Aircabin.

“We are also extremely happy to see the very successful developments of our licensees in advanced packaging, automotive, and building, construction and infrastructure,” adds Bianka Nagy, Marketing Communications Manager of EconCore. “Our technology can be applied in so many diverse areas, and this is something that we will be highlighting on our stand at JEC World this year. We also have an aircraft stowage unit with a honeycomb core on display in the Innovation Planets area.”
