• What is the difference between a honeycomb block, a honeycomb slice and a honeycomb sheet.

  • The aluminium honeycomb block is the end result of the honeycomb manufacturing process. The blocks are unexpanded and usually between 995 and 1070 mm wide (T direction). The width can be cut down into individual unexpanded slices. The thickness depends on the customer requirement. After this the unexpanded slices can be expanded to form the finished expanded sheet. Corex Honeycomb sells honeycomb in all three formats: as blocks, unexpanded slices and expanded sheets. Honeycomb sheets are also referred to as expanded slices.
