Aluminium honeycomb core for composite sandwich panels in boats & the marine sector
Corex Honeycomb manufactures aluminium honeycomb core used in boats and the marine sector. Whilst being uncompromisingly strong, our impact resistant aluminium honeycomb, when used in composite panels, reduces the added weight of structures, furniture and fittings, making this the ideal material for marine applications.
Aluminium honeycomb is used worldwide in yachts, racing boats, recreational boats and commercial craft and can be applied in the construction of partitions, interiors, furniture, doors, ceilings, sole flooring, gunwales, hulls and bulkheads.
Corex Honeycomb has been awarded the Wheelmark and United States Coastguard Certification. By complying with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea 1974 and Smoke and Toxicity Test to IMO Resolution MSC 61(67), our aluminium honeycomb is suitable for use on board any European or American marine vessel.
We are the ideal partner to collaborate on your marine project as we have invested in the relevant certification to support our long standing customers.
Polypropylene and aramid paper honeycomb
We can also provide our customers with a range of Nomex® and Kevlar® aramid paper honeycomb core. Nomex® is a flame-resistant material known for its exceptional durability and rigidity; Kevlar® is a heat-resistant fibre with very high tensile strength, known for its ability to withstand high impact. Both DuPont™ Kevlar® aramid fibers and DuPont™ Nomex® flame resistant fibers have proven to be highly suitable for the construction of hulls, superstructures, bulkheads, and furniture that are both tough and durable.
We also supply polypropylene honeycomb (UK only), which is ideally suited to boat and ship construction. The material ensures lower weight whilst increasing pressure, impact and bending stability. Sandwich and lightweight elements made from polypropylene honeycombs have the valuable characteristics of low water absorption and corrosion resistance.
