Honeycomb Core

Honeycomb core is a material in which large numbers of hexagon-shaped cells are assembled into a “honeycomb” structure. It was developed as a structural material for aircraft and features light weight and high stiffness, and for these reasons, is widely used in general industrial applications.

SAIC has a 50-year proven track record in the manufacture and sale of this material.

・Light weight ・High stiffness ・Flow rectification ・Sound absorption 
・Large surface area ・Impact absorption 
・Electromagnetic shielding ・Thermal insulation 
・Other (light scattering, surface smoothness, radio wave transmissivity)

Aluminum Honeycomb

Aluminum honeycomb has a lower relative weight compared to other metallic materials and offers excellent corrosion resistance. With its high reliability certified to meet MIL-SPEC standards, this material finds use in numerous cutting-edge fields.
