Polycarbonate panels

The versatile EconCore ThermHex technology is able to efficiently produce honeycomb core sandwich panels with various core and skin material combinations. By applying ThermHex technology to produce polycarbonate honeycomb panels EconCore introduces a new generation of translucent panels for building applications having performance advantages over conventional solutions including high thermal insulating and aesthetically appealing honeycomb structure.

High translucency is becoming more important for many building applications. This is driven not only by personal taste and design, but also by environmental need ofr more natural lighting in place of artificial lighting. Structures such as verandas,  stadiums, shopping centers, libraries, office buildings and factories benefit from translucent building elements that meet functional and environmental needs while being aesthetically appealing. In many cases for theses application glass is too heavy, too brittle and difficult to install.

Building elements based on polymer materials are often preferred over glass due to ease of installation and impact resistance. Using the continuous ThermHex process to produce polycarbonate honeycomb sandwich panels results in outstanding mechanical performance-to-weight ratio with considerable cost saving potential compared to traditional PC or PMMA multiwall panels.

Applications: building and construction (including roofing, daylighting panels, interior walls, semi-structural panels for design, greenhouses) and other applications requiring lightweight translucent panel solutions.

ThermHex polycarbonate honeycomb panels exceed traditional polycarbonate multiwall sheets (PC MWS)
