Nomex and Kevlar aramid paper honeycomb range
We can now provide our customers with a range of Nomex® and Kevlar® aramid paper honeycomb core, working with Schutz Cormaster. Nomex® and Kevlar® are aromatic polyamides or aramids developed by DuPont™. 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.

The range comprises of Aerospace and Industrial grade products:
N636: Made with Kevlar® N636 paper for structural applications where low weight and maximum performance are required.
Benefits: Extremely high shear modulus, 1.5 to 3 times higher than Nomex® honeycomb at the same density. Excellent compressive strength, 20% higher than Nomex® honeycombs in terms of density.
C1: Made with Nomex® T412 paper for main aerospace structural and cabin applications.
Benefits: Self-extinguishing and low fume toxicity
Industrial/ Commercial Grade
C2: Made with Nomex® T722 paper and is ideally suited to structural sandwich applications in the automotive, marine, rail, transport and sports industries.
Benefits: Offers excellent value for money with superior mechanical properties and a high strength to weight ratio.
This new range of non-metallic honeycomb fully complies with a rigorous quality management system that meets EN ISO 9001 standards which apply to the aviation and aerospace industries.
In addition, we are also able to offer the following new services:
Machined Nomex® and Kevlar®:5-axis machining of three-dimensional pieces to customers own designs, up to the maximum dimensions of 2,200mm x 6,500mm x 1,140mm. CNC-controlled machines ensure precise edges and holes, even on curved surfaces.
Formed Nomex® and Kevlar®: Using in-house produced tools and special furnaces for cold and hot forming; we can produce moulded parts measuring up to 4,000mm x 2,500mm x 2,500mm.
Bonded Nomex® and Kevlar®: To be able to specifically adjust the properties of the honeycomb structure in different areas of a component, we can combine different types of honeycomb. For example, zones with over-expanded honeycomb allow flexible curvatures in otherwise rigid structures
Stabilised Nomex® and Kevlar®: To obtain special characteristics, the honeycomb can be filled with a variety of different materials in a fully automatic process.
If you have a project requiring Nomex® or Kevlar® paper honeycomb or require further information about the range, please contact our sales team.
For further examples of applications please see the Cormaster website.
The addition of Nomex® or Kevlar® paper honeycomb compliment the range of composite materials within the Corex Honeycomb range which includes aluminium honeycomb and Tubus Waben polypropylene honeycomb.
